Felecia Chizuko Carlisle works across mediums and within a wide variety of contexts in performance, installation, sound, sculpture, photography, and video. Her atmospheric interventions intervene in the light and architecture of the space, as with My Vessel is Healthy and I Request Free Practique at Deering Estate, Forever and a Day (2018) and her installation at Perez Art Museum Miami in 2010, among others. Chizuko Carlisle also makes custom instruments shown at Elaine L. Jacobs Gallery in Detroit, MI in 2018, Emerson Dorsch in 2017, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in 2014 and ‘16, Locust Projects in 2015, and the Frost Museum of Art in 2017. Her custom instrument installation at Vizcaya was both an atmospheric intervention in terms of light and sound and also a sculpture in and of itself. This mode of working combines with Chizuko Carlisle’s drive to collaborate, resulting in Sounding Room, which she organized at Locust Projects, built upon her ideas about the community activating potential of sound art. That exhibition later traveled to the Power Plant Gallery at Duke University. Another instance of this collaborative spirit is in In all his tuneful turning so few and such morning songs / Before the children green and golden / Follow him out of grace (2019), her video and production of the performance beneath My Vessel is Healthy and I Request Free Practique at Deering Estate by NSL Danse Ensemble, a Haitian folkloric dance group.
