The Disappearing Body

Al-Ani, Jananne (2010) The Disappearing Body. In: Photographic Portraiture ­ Transgressive and Transformative Potentials, November 5th 2010, Chelsea College of Art and Design, London. (Unpublished)

Type of Research: Conference, Symposium or Workshop Item
Creators: Al-Ani, Jananne

For my presentation to the forum, Photographic Portraiture ­ Transgressive and Transformative Potentials, my intention was to trace the literal and metaphorical disappearance of the body from my photographic and moving image work. Starting with early work examining the media coverage of the first Gulf War through to photographic portraits exploring Orientalist fantasies surrounding the representation of the veil in early European photography then moving on to more recent films shot out of the studio and in the landscape. I finished with a more in-depth examination of a new body of work I have been developing, The Aesthetics of Disappearance: A Land Without People, which explores the disappearance of the body in the contested and highly charged landscapes of the Middle East
