Biography & CV

Mo Kessler (they/them) is a queer Southern sculptor, installation artist, and community organizer.

Centering on the social and environmental landscape of Appalachia and the South, Mo’s artwork is focused on labor as both an action and a movement, working-class visibility, and the power of objects made by hand. This work ranges in medium and scale. Mo uses regional craft techniques and the transformation of used domestic materials as a means to investigate place, class, and the politics of disposability.
