May Maylisa Cat | Karmic II
July 30 – September 10, 2021
Karmic II examines the symbolism of ghosts in media through sonic elements and performance. Inspired by Southeast Asian horror movies and ’90s TV drama of the ghost Phi Krasue, the artist investigates what exactly creates “a monster,” and what psychological and social control they enforce. Karmic II is a continuation of a New Media Fellowship project and an immersive installation, Karmic I, exhibited at Open Signal in 2019 in Portland, OR. This exhibit is supported in part by funds from the Oregon Arts Commission.
