Monica Tolia (she/they) is a London-based visual artist, performer & organiser.
Their interdisciplinary practice spans across performance & choreography, costuming, sound, video & technology. Culminating into sensory installations, performances & events, their work draws on communal ritual acts, animist & Taoist spiritual themes as decolonial approaches to inhabiting space together. Their research is based on how non-Western knowledge practices can inform collective-building, deep connections & healing amongst human and more-than-human worlds, contemplating critical questions with regard to influences of technology & political reality. Since 2021, they are co-founder of the ESEA diaspora collective ‘Have you eaten yet?’, organising performance-based events on the intersections of food, migration, art/activism & creating affectionate space.
