Kani Marouf (*1991, Saarbrücken) is a filmmaker and artist based in Berlin. In her practice, she captures states of humility, implementing it into strategies of her image production. Her research is guided by the subject’s imprisonment, rooted in the rigid form of images. The results are films and installations, in which she questions the image in relation to a more and more desensitized audience 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, revealing the charged relationship between 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.
