Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley

(lives in London)

Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley is a non disciplinary, non-binary artist working predominantly in animation, sound, performance and video games to communicate the experiences of being a black trans person. The artistic practice focuses on recording the lives of black trans people, intertwining lived experience, fiction and interactivity to create work that refuses to let viewers be passive. The works are often seen as a form of autonomous archiving in which the experience shifts and moulds based on the identity of the user as well as the choices they make during the experiences.
