Elnaz Javani

Elnaz Javani’s practice links and juxtaposes her experiences with fictional narratives in the intersections of identity, gender, labor and power relations. Through material manipulations, she creates objects and surfaces that constitute the purview of the corporeal and psychological stratum of the human body. She investigates the material and the possibilities of hand-processes such as stitching, embroidery, dye and fiber with daily materials. Through these repetitive and labor-intensive practices, she examines the way that attention and power can be redirected and reconstituted as a form of body and devotion.
