Anna Luisa Petrisko is a visual artist and musician. Her art investigates the complexities of the colonized body while encompassing a multitude of experience of time, space, and self. Whether it is experimental opera, multimedia installation, or a tropical new age pop album, her work is otherworldly spectacle that explores future and ancient ideas, invested as much in the sacred as in technological speculation. Anna Luisa's trademark hand-painted bodysuits are re-indigenized alien skin, an embodied research project and reconception of pre-colonial tattooing practices of Pacific Ocean Peoples.
She recently received the MAP Fund Award for her forthcoming multimedia performance piece GENERATION SPACE.
