Hanni Kamaly is a research-based artist working with sculpture, video and performance. Her work examines the political construction of identity throughout history using layered research and a material approach. She investigates who has the authority to write and display history, as well as how these histories are recorded, embodied, and collected. Kamaly’s works weave together fragments to expose visual culture, ethnography, and history, exposing patriarchal, colonial, racist, and nationalist structures that still exist today.
Hanni Kamaly has exhibited work at Accelerator, Stockholm; 34th Bienal de São Paulo; and Index – Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation, Stockholm, among others.hannikamaly.com
