Daphane Park’s work investigates the convergence of energy medicine, science, cognitive anthropology, and the mythical realms of humanity. Since the late 80’s this has led her to study traditional energy medicine from across the globe, specifically in Mexico and the Amazon.
Park’s intentions are to create an energy field by blending and layering a diverse array of media that invite a heightened awareness of the emotional and energetic body. This manifests in the creation of immersive installations that invite the audience to become part of the piece itself.
She has received numerous grants and awards, including a Fulbright. Her work has been shown internationally at the Moscow Biennale, MONA Tasmania, New Museum, NYC and New Orleans Biennale, among many others.
At AiR 351 she plans to explore ritual and inspiration in the divine feminine, researching women healers and the concept of the ‘wise woman’ as it relates to her practice.
