ABOUT NAOMI MOONLION
Naomi Moonlion (they/them) is a non-binary artist, witch and writer. They are based in The
Hague, the Netherlands. Through their interdisciplinary art projects, they aim to make
utopian and political fantasies a reality. Their work manifests itself in embodied research,
discussing topics like identity politics and creating community through a queer and pagan
perspective. They sculpt fantastical worlds through photography, performance, video,
installation and joyfully craft objects and creatures to inhabit them.
Throughout the entire process of creating, they aim to facilitate a space for people to
discuss society in an open and honest way. To provide a moment of slowness, an
antithesis to the capitalist rush that can be so easy to get absorbed in. By sharing their
imaginations with their audience, they urge people to relate to their humanity together.

THOUGHTS FROM NAOMI MOONLION ABOUT THE TRIP
I feel belonging when I scrunch my hands around a ball of clay. I feel belonging when I dunk my
head in the sea, close my eyes to protect from salt, pinch my nose and let my hair float. I feel
belonging when I dance alone, naked in my room, I let my body move however I want it to,
unobserved and unrestricted. I feel belonging when I run through the forest, the sound of rustling
leaves mixes with my heavy breath. I am breathing, I am alive, I am here and I am whole. I feel
belonging when I laugh a belly laugh, giddy and joyous and full of hope.
Can we experience belonging in any space? How can we create these moments for ourselves,
internally? How can we connect to the land in this ever individualizing world?
