"'One Whose Name Was Water' is an erasure of 'IV. Here Lies One Whose Name Was Writ In Water' from 9 Artists: Exhibition Catalogue by Bartholomew Ryan (Walker Art Center, 2013), a long-form essay that introduces Danh Vō and his intercontinental body of work. My initial inspiration for this piece was the full-scale exhibition Danh Vo: Take My Breath Away, on view at the Guggenheim Museum, New York, from February 9 to May 9, 2018."
