Feral Practice

Fiona MacDonald is an artist and researcher who works with human and nonhuman beings as Feral Practice to create art projects and interdisciplinary events that develop ethical and imaginative connection across species boundaries. Often people set up a divide between human and nonhuman being, and between different categories of knowledge and understanding. Feral Practice aims to converse across these barriers. Their research draws on artistic, scientific and subjective knowledge practices to expand relationality, explore diverse aesthetics and foreground distinctive creaturely subjectivities.

Recent projects include: Stream of Consciousness, a 360 VR film experience exploring the River Darent and its habitats. Cocococu, a collaborative, ant-focused residency and exhibition in Porto Alegre, Brasil. Listening Station, a site specific sound art commission for Mangotsfield. The Ant-ic Museum, an exhibition guided by ants, for Scarborough Museum and Art Galleries. Lissener, a site specific audio drama for Estuary Festival 2021.
