Felecia Chizuko Carlisle

Felecia Chizuko Carlisle (Born 1972 Pensacola, FL. Lives in Miami, FL.) performs atmospheric alchemy by making work about space, light, sound, and with this ephemera, the psyche of a place and time. Many of her works feature two phases, atmospheric intervention in the form of sculptural form and lighting, and community activation. She is an artist, educator, and organizer. All these roles contribute to her interstitial fine art practice. She works across performance, installation, sound, sculpture, photography, and video within a wide variety of contexts including nightclubs, gardens, bathrooms, empty lots, and fire stations; as well as, museums, commercial galleries, and non-profit art spaces.
