Rebecca J Shapass
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bensonhurst



ARTIST STATEMENT: My practice is focused in an exploration of femininity and womxnhood. This interest converges with a study of memory and time, careful research, and the employment of anachronistic technology to address themes of sexuality, identity, and the body. My work takes a highly personal approach. Diaristic elements are combined with found footage, analog video mixing, and the use of my body in performance in front of and behind the camera in order to deconstruct notions surrounding femininity through the lens of greater historical and social narratives. My works take the form of film & video, installation, performance, and multi-media art.
