September 9, 2022 5:30 pm - September 10, 2022 10:00 pm
Friday, September 9th 5:30pm — Saturday, September 10th 11pm
Space has always reduced me to silence is a site-specific, durational performance that explores the politics of domestic space and the threshold of the personal. From dawn to dusk, artist Hanieh Khatibi will attempt to bind over 10,000 yards of thread around her childhood home before unraveling. The performance will be live streamed in its entirety at HRLA.
Hanieh Khatibi (b.1985, Tehran, Iran) is an LA-based artist whose work considers the continuity, resistance, agency and interrelationships that exist in nature and society through sculpture, performance, and video. Her work has been exhibited at the Echo Park Film Center, Track 16, Commons LA, Peter and Merle Mullin Gallery, CalArts, among others. Khatibi was a participant of the 2020 ArtCenter DTLA Residency Project, Love’s Remedies.
