My practice moves between fields of poetic cinematography, embodied writing, installation of crafted objects and in-situ land-based actions. As a context-based practice concerned with geo-bodies, hybridity, hydro feminism and poetic narratives. Emphasizing a connection to place and openness toward the nonhuman, vegetative and planetary bodies. The landscape being an imaginative force in relation to my own body by a performative materiality and choreographed gesture.
I place myself in the field of hydro-feminism, post-human temporalities and ecological care - doing field trips, collaborations and collective exchanges as ways to build situational knowledge and research material.

Zoey Hart is an interdisciplinary artist, educator and collaborator living with chronic illness, mostly based in Brooklyn, NY. Driven by the frictions between invisible disability and modern medicine, my visual/performative practice re-centers the notion of what constitutes well-being in changing social and environmental contexts. Harts life and work continue to be co-informed by the process of navigating disability through inaccessible terrain.
The materials, processes, spaces and activations in my work evolve and adapt with the fluidity of shifting access needs, and how I can best access new environments that continue to inspire me. Of late, I have been working on a series critically examining care and accessibility as they function in the natural world. From Myco/Access work with mushrooms in Finland, to Waterfront Access Mapping with Works on Water in NYC, I try to read access, sustainability, resilience and wellbeing in the specific social, cultural and environmental conditions under which I live and work.
