Hanni Kamaly (b. 1988, Hamar, Norway) is educated at Malmö Academy of Art, Bergen Academy of Arts and the International Art Academy of Palestine and her works have been exhibited Moderna Museet, Lunds Konsthall, Malmö Art Museum, Luleå Biennial among others.
Hanni Kamaly’s interdisciplinary works involve sculpture, video and performance, that investigate the process of alienation and the devaluation of the subject. Central to her practice is the human body, working as a home of the subject as well as a projection for norms, ideologies and power structures. Kamalys work weaves a fine mesh that connects anthropology with politics and contemporary analysis. She connects the present with the past and reality with fiction, traces the historical roots of different phenomena, and illustrates how racist beliefs about people and bodies are performed in popular culture and media, to then be expressed in real events.
