One Hundred Bodies of Water, 2023
Lisa Myeong-Joo is an emerging artist and arts worker combining personal narrative, material and gesture into an expanded performance practice. She considers how meaning is made and transferred between the body, place and culture. As a Korean adoptee, her work often occupies the space in-between by making room for embodied, ambiguous and risky processes to unfold. Lisa is interested in participatory performance as a tool for collective experience and a new way to invite play and connection with one another.
100 Bodies of Water is a series of 3x5 photographs; functioning as both collectable objects and temporary tattoos ready to be activated on the body. The photographs document a sunset on the Ganges River in Varanasi, 2017, a site considered sacred to many.
