About Stanya Kahn
Stanya Kahn is an interdisciplinary artist working primarily in film and video with a practice that includes drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, sound, and writing. Humor, pathos and the uncanny are central to a hybrid media practice that seeks to re-work relationships between fiction and document, the real and the hyper-real, narrative time and the synchronic time of impulse. In a long-term investigation of how rhetoric gains and loses power, Kahn’s projects often situate language in the foreground of works that are dialectically driven by the demands of the body. Sometimes language falls away altogether.
