Lisa Watts began her three month Blast Theory Residency in 2019. As an artist she has an eclectic practice exploring the core disciplines of performance, sculpture, photography and video.
During her time at Blast Theory she’s working on a deeply personal project about reconciling the gaps that can exist in parent and child relationships, especially between a father and daughter. The work draws on her and her father’s experience of caring for their wife and mother, and the legacy it has left in both of them. The aesthetic and form of the installation draws on her experience as an artist and her father’s experience as a builder.
