Artist Quote

" We live in a completely unequitable white supremacist capitalist patriarchal system, within which people are born condemned to lives that they have no control over, We’re in a moment of social collapse, definitely climate collapse, and it’s like, what we have isn’t working, it’s broken. "

우리는 완전히 불평등한 백인 우월주의 자본주의 가부장제 시스템에 살고 있으며, 그 안에서 사람들은 통제할 수 없는 삶을 선고받은 채 태어났습니다. 우리는 사회 붕괴, 확실히 기후 붕괴의 순간에 처해 있습니다. 마치 우리가 갖고 있는 것이 제대로 작동하지 않고 고장난 것 같습니다.  "

London based artist whose multidisciplinary practice, comprising performance, film, photography and installation, revolves around experimental narrative texts. Shani creates violent, erotic and fantastical images told in a dense, floral language which re-imagines female otherness as a perfect totality, set in a world complete with cosmologies, myth and histories that negate patriarchy. These alternate between familiar narrative tropes and structures and theoretical prose in order to explore the construction of subjectivity, excess and affect and the epic as the ground for a post-patriarchal realism.

그녀는 런던을 거점으로 공연, 영화, 사진, 설치로 구성된 다학제적 작업을 실험적인 내러티브 텍스트를 중심으로 하고 있습니다. 샤니는 가부장제를 부정하는 우주론, 신화, 역사가 가득한 세계를 배경으로 여성의 타자성을 완벽한 총체성으로 재해석하는 농밀한 꽃말로 폭력적이고 에로틱하며 환상적인 이미지를 창조합니다. 이들은 주관성, 과잉, 감정의 구성과 포스트가부장적 현실주의의 기반인 서사시를 탐구하기 위해 친숙한 서사 비유와 구조, 이론적 산문을 번갈아 가며 사용합니다.
