Frances Mezzetti (Ireland) is a performance artist based in Dublin. Francis is performing as part of Belfast International Festival of Performance Art (BIFPA)

She graduated in NCAD 1998 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art Sculpture. Her work examines the connection of the human subject with the local environment, using common materials, everyday actions, and the personal and local history of a given place.  Collaboration with other artists is a mark of Mezzetti's practice. She was one of 20 artists who performed in the Right Here, Right Now live event that took place in Kilmainham Gaol in November 2010. The ongoing series of performances, Walking in the Way, in which gender construction is explored, was created and performed with Pauline Cummins in Belfast, Dublin and Edinburgh. In 2011 she graduated with an MSc in Art Psychotherapy from Queen Margaret University, Scotland.
