Shading the Orient
Guerilla magazine, Dec 11, 2013
Lital Khaikin discusses Iranian-Canadian video artist Raheleh Saneie's practice (the artist is also known as Rah), which questions the construction of identity/ies within contemporary western visual culture. Often the main protagonist in her work, Rah directly engages the viewer in order to illustrate the functioning of ethnic, racial, national and gender stereotypes in contemporary [Canadian] culture. Moreover, her work is committed to consistently challenging issues of female objectification through playful confrontation.
