Ta­la Ma­da­ni’s Men: The Fe­male Gaze

Art Press - - RUDE GIRL -

dis­playing his illu­mi­na­ted anus. Ma­da­ni, cu­rious­ly, em­pha­sizes the sub­jec­ti­vi­ty of this co­mic ten­sion and calls it a way to ward off fee­lings of shame and of­fense when fa­ced with our most pri­vate acts, like de­fe­ca­tion, om­ni­present in her work, and her more al­lu­sive re­fe­ren­cing of ho­mo­sexua­li­ty, lin­ked to the mas­cu­line and so­me­times sexual ex­clu­si­vi­ty of the fi­gures, as in Drip­ping Flo­wers (2016) and TBC (2016). Ma­da­ni al­so uses di­gi­tal ani­ma­ted films. Mo­ve­ment aug­ments the nar­ra­tive ca­pa­ci­ty of the images and al­lows them to un­fold over time, whe­reas the ab­sence of a sound track ac­cen­tuates the vi­sual di­men­sion of this work. The hor­ror and hu­mor are loa­ded with po­li­ti­cal in­ten­tions.
