Meloe is a poet and playwright. Their artistic practice explores embodied narratives through poems, moving images and performance art.

 

Meloe grew up among Black women who were activists, artists, writers and scholars. Having had access to their thoughts and libraries at a very young age, Meloe built their mixed-race trans non-binary self with a strong sense of belonging and responsability.

 

They graduated in Law, Literature and History and worked as a legalist and activist in the hope to play their part in the movement of liberation of all people; and it is through a combination of circumstances that Meloe has become an artist.

 

As a founding member of Collective X, a collective of poets, activists and community care professionals, they are currently conducting artistic research on the agentivity of artists from disabled, transgender and Afro-diasporic cultures; with the support of Barak Adé Soleil, Khairani Barokka,  Syrus Marcus Ware and the Zürich school of Arts.

 

Prohelvetia, Istituto svizzero, city of Geneva and ZHDK fellow, their written practice was awarded the Robert Goffin Biennial Poetry Prize.
