Molly Jo Shea

Molly Jo Shea is an interdisciplinary artist focusing mostly on performance, object making and creating interactive experiences. Growing up as a daughter of an opera singer and a special effects artist her work is a combination of decadence and horror dragged through a hall of mirrors. Interested in manipulating systems, Shea creates environments and characters that pervert the familiar and provide new experiences for community engagement. She has combined Pick-up artists and Trappers, defrosted Feminist cavewomen and hosted seminars on humiliation from a stockade in order to explore how we observe things like gender and power in a shifting world.
