20 Questions: Lisa Jarrett
Twenty Questions is a series that asks artists to create a list of questions that they ask themselves about their practice. Like the game “20 Questions”, the format offers readers a chance to get to know what a given artist’s practice might be.
- Skylights or Windows?
- What do you do for your shadow?
- What happens when you accept this work within an artist-defined vernacular rather than an art world defined vernacular?
- What emerges when modernism isn’t the framework for producing meaning?
- What are systems of connection as opposed to systems of oppression?
- What is a distinction without difference?
- How do you remain vulnerable?
- What social conversations do you have with yourself?
- Birds, is flying in wind more like giving up or giving in?
- How do you cross a threshold into a living room?
- Where are you hiding the honey?
- Why do things loom larger in memory, shadow, and reflection?
- Where, precisely, are your loved ones?
- Is this your weapon of choice?
- How do you talk with your blood memory?
- What is your innate choreography?
- What is the product of your labor?
- Is sensory deprivation enough?
- Is this a persistent sense of loss?
- What if love is a third thing altogether?
