Jeepneys (Anna Luisa Petrisko) is an artist working in sound, video, dance, and performance. Named after the iconic converted WWII army jeeps of the Philippines, her work investigates the complexities of postcolonial identities and aims to encompass a multitude of experience of time, space, and self. With experimental operas, multimedia installations, and a fleet of hand painted body spacesuits, Jeepneys creates new mythological landscapes for future hybrids. She is a member of Black Salt Collective, whose members are all Black, brown, and indigenous women creating work that is about contemporary non-linear identity in which experience results in atmosphere. She has exhibited at REDCAT, The Getty's Pacific Standard Time Presents, MOMA PS1, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE), ALOUD for the LA Public Library, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA), Machine Project and Human Resources. She has received artist-in-residence fellowships with the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), Yaddo, Echo Park Film Center.
