Kani Marouf’s (*1991, born in Saarbrücken, currently based in Berlin) practice seeks to capture humility as a mythical mode of image production. Her research is guided by the subject’s imprisonment, rooted in the rigid from of images. The results are films, readings and, installations, in which she questions the image in relation to a more and more desensitized public as its recipient. The narrative elements in her films quickly transform from trivial observations to reveal the cinematic machine behind what we are looking at, creating a tenuous relationship between the spectator and the Absent Cause. Marouf channels the notion of enunciation and suture as emotive tools of storytelling to inspect the truthfulness of images. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Bauhaus University Weimar and a Masters of Fine Art from Sandberg Instituut, Amsterdam.
