Master Class 2022: Shana Moulton

U.S based artist Shana Moulton discusses her multi-faceted practice. Spanning video, sculptural installation and performance, her work addresses themes of new age spirituality, contemporary anxieties, and how we ascribe meaning to the ever changing landscape of 21st century images, gestures and objects. Moulton is known for her alter-ego Cynthia, who searches for purpose and fulfilment through self-help tools, cosmetic rituals and wellness
fantasies of self-actualisation.
