DARK CONTINENT PRODUCTIONS Print Set

400.00

Set of 12 cards digitally printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308gsm.

16.5cm x 20cm, Edition of 24 (+4 A/P) in archival box.

Each card represents one of the twelve characters that have appeared in ‘Dark Continent Productions’ which is Tai Shani’s on-going project that proposes an allegorical city of women, it is an experimental adaptation of Christine de Pizan’s 1405 pioneering feminist book, ‘The Book of the City of Ladies’, In it Christine builds an allegorical city for notable women drawn from a medieval conception of history, where fact, fiction and myth are blurred. Characters from fiction live side by side with female historical figures, collectively making an early case for gender equality.

This “City of Women” is a formal construct to imagine realities beyond gender, articulate an alternative history which privileges sensation and interiority, challenges patriarchal conceptions of history and gender, as well as the potentials of a realism defined by excess and the irrational and other notions traditionally surrounding “femininity” to imagine and build a post-patriarchal future.

The 12 characters interlinked by a common mythology and logic, are drawn from feminist and queer histories and theory, science fiction and various mythologies that deliver poetic monologues that explore subjectivity, embodiment and epic affects as a a transformative political platform.

The 12 characters: Woman on the Edge of Time, The Cube of Flesh, Teenager, The Vampyre, The Neanderthal Hermaphrodite, Sirens, Mirror, Mnemesoid, The Medieval Mystic, Phantasmagoregasm, Paradise, and Psy Chic Anem One.
