DEEPER. DEEPER, CLOSER, CLOSER: Between a language of inwardness and that of pure surface

Abstract [en]

The image of the female figure is present, yet she is in constant need of being produced in order to persist. Images of women are everywhere, but simultaneously she is nowhere near, caught up in hyper-(in)visibility.

In these drawings Channa explores the motions and emotions of looking closer and going deeper, in order to demonstrate that the woman is only a copy of a copy without an original. The act of re-claiming, re-inventing and re-signifying the concept of womanhood is doomed to be both exclusive and inclusive. By centering the unsettling, yet liberating insight that resistance is never in a position of exteriority in relation to power, Channa questions the act of intervening; how the intervention itself must construct the image it wants to deconstruct.
