Rachelle Anayansi Mozman
As an artist working with both still and moving images, my practice is concerned with the playful intersection of documentary, narrative and performative tendencies. My work engages themes of perception and divisions in class and gender. I address these themes in relationship to the individual experience. As a consequence I work collaboratively with my subjects. My image making comes from a biographical place and most recently my mother is my principle model in the re-telling of my family history through set up photographs. Ultimately my work is concerned with identity of the self within the parameters of culture.
