Shani Mootoo
Christine's World 1/10 - An emotive photographic portrait of change and memory

2019

$2,000

About

From her "History Revisited" series, this photographic memoir by Shani Mootoo is an emotive portrait of change. This framed and matted giclee print is editioned, 1/10. Print size is 12 x 18 inches. The print is also available in two larger sizes, 16 x 24 (framed 25 x 33 inches, edition of 8, $2,600); and 21 x 31.5 inches (30.5 x 40 inches framed, edition of 5, $3,400). Mootoo's images of interior rooms, furniture and trinkets constitute a form of portraiture, where the lines and wrinkles of the aging space resemble the aging of a person, their life story revealed on their skin. The original vision of the house has been transformed by time and by the usage and neglect of progressive generations. This is the home Mootoo returns to when she visits Trinidad, and like the family member who travels 'back home' to visit aged relatives, she has photographed the spaces therein to capture--perhaps for posterity, perhaps for the nostalgia of the one who left home and country--its history of the generations laid one on top of the other, each layer creating a pentimento of stories.  Shani Mootoo is an accomplished writer, filmmaker, painter and photographer who has been longlisted for the Booker Man Prize and in 2020 shortlisted for the Giller Prize. She earned a BFA from the University of Western Ontario, and an MA in English from the University of Guelph.  In her artworks, Mootoo explores the idea of dislocation, identity, belonging: “…identity, like perspective, is inevitably shifting and multi-faceted.”Mootoo's paintings have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions locally and internationally, most notably at the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Queen’s Museum in NYC, the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston, and at the Venice Biennale. Her photographs have been exhibited at Maison Depoivre in Prince Edward County, Canada. Her videos include “English Lesson”, “Wild Woman in The Woods” and “Her Sweetness Lingers,” and have been screened in film and video festivals and art exhibitions locally and internationally, including at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. Shani Mootoo was born in Ireland and raised in Trinidad. She lives in Canada.
