Monet Clark, 2022
Monet Clark is an eco-feminist and performance based video and photographic artist, curator, and professional psychic. Her wryly humorous performance characters and costumes are inspired by subculture, pop-culture, superheroes, marginalized groups, history, and more. Her works address sexual stereotypes, objectification, cultural taboos, ritual, and nature’s sentience, and draw upon her experience with disability and enviromental illness. They examine connections between misogyny, domination and mistrust of nature, disrespect of animals, and climate change. Monet sees her work in the art-world and as an intuitive, both as countering to patriarchal cultural biases. She was born and raised in Los Angeles and then Northern California in a mixed-race family, and was educated at San Francisco State University and the San Francisco Art Institute, where she earned her BFA. She exhibits internationally.
