The Word is Art

Very happy to have 'Be the Pink Panther and Your Loves will be like the Wasp and the Orchid, the Cat and the Baboon' included in the book The Word is Art by Michael Petry, which is to be published by Thames & Hudson in October 2018. Petry questions and examines the value that words can hold across rich and diverse contemporary art forms and questions how, as a form of art, text is different from poetry. Other artists featured include Bruce Nauman, Tracey Emin, Christian Boltanski, Takashi Murakami, Nathan Coley, to name but a few.

"Be The Pink Panther and Your Loves will be like The Wasp and The Orchid, The Cat and The Baboon" (detail) by Lisa Z. Morgan 2016. Embroidered text, linen. 36ins x 96ins

About Me

My photo
Lisa Z. Morgan is an artist, designer and writer. The subject and object of desire has been a palpable constant within her artistic expression both as a motivation and in its embodiment or articulation. Through her creativity and research Morgan examines how the value of provenance, of rarity and storytelling, puts into question or provokes our understanding and relationship towards desire and the desire impulse. Her focus has been how we may access, stimulate and touch the internal points of registration or the emotional dynamics of bodily perception. In essence she attempts to define and make manifest the feeling of feeling. Her work inhabits a space where art, semiotics, design and fashion intersect. Morgan is the Co-Founder of STRUMPET & PINK and the Co-Founder of The Lavender Hinge. She is the author and creative editor of Design Behind Desire and also a contributor to SHOWstudio and The Laboratory Arts Collective.
