Meg Wilson

Meg Wilson is an Adelaide-based interdisciplinary artist who works predominantly with large-scale and site-specific installation and performance. Her visual art and theatre design practices are mutually influential and frequently overlap. Meg aims to provoke imposed perplexity, uneasiness and a sense of drama in the everyday, through explorations of the performativity of space and the audience encounter with the ordinary, set within the context of the out-of-the-ordinary.

Meg has exhibited independently with BLINDSIDE, VIC; Constance ARI, TAS; Format, Fontanelle, Nexus Arts and FELTspace public projects in Adelaide. She regularly collaborates with performers Ashton Malcolm and Josephine Were. Recent works include You Will Only Ever Be Any Good if You Can Run the Marathon, an endurance feat performed at the Contemporary Art Centre of SA (2015), Team Trampoline at FELTspace (2016), and Sometimes I…, a punk feminist performance in development exclusively for teenage girls. Meg is a former co-director of FELTspace ARI.

As a designer for theatre Meg has worked with companies such as Vitalstatistix, Foul Play and Restless Dance, with artists including Mish Grigor, Willoh S.Weiland, Halcyon Macleod, Emma Beech and Michelle Ryan. In 2016 Meg was Lead Artist intern with experimental theatremakers, THE RABBLE.
