TAI SHANI: SEMIRAMIS
Jul 20 - Oct 14, 2018
Tai Shani presents her first major solo exhibition in a public gallery, presenting the culmination of her ongoing project Dark Continent, which includes an immersive installation in The Tetley’s atrium, film works, posters and a selection of artworks drawn together by Shani.
 
Over the last four years Tai Shani has been developing a body of work that takes Christine de Pizan’s 1405 proto-feminist text The Book of the City of Ladies as its starting point. Pizan created an allegorical city of 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.
