Handlingen i Whispering Pines kretsar kring den tragiska figuren Chyntia spelad av Shana Moulton själv. Chyntias tillvaro går i mångt och mycket ut på att strosa omkring hemma och känna sig krasslig och otillfreds. Sin olycka och sina krämpor försöker hon bota med en arsenal av det mest tveksamma som finns att tillgå inom alternativmedicin och själhjälpsmetoder – eller genom att skaffa nya tillskott till sin ständigt växande samling osannolika prydnadsföremål.

Med pastellbetonad färgsättning, hemmasnickrade specialeffekter och dråplig humor skapar Moulton en mycket egendomlig stämning i sina arbeten. Hennes hållning till de behandlade fenomenen är ambivalent, å ena sidan är hon tydligt kritisk, till och med ironiserande, men samtidigt kan man inte ta miste på hennes gedigna kärlek till estetiken och sinnesstämningarna i det hon skildrar.

The plot of the Whispering Pines revolves around the tragic figure Chyntia played by Shana Moulton himself. Chyntias life is very much like to stroll around at home and feel under the weather and unsatisfactory. His accident and his ailments she tries to cure with an arsenal of the most doubtful that is available in alternative medicine and mind through practice – or by raising new additions to its growing collection of incredible ornaments.

With pastel stressed coloration, home carved special effects and hilarious humor Moulton creates a very strange feeling in their jobs. Her approach to the considered phenomena are ambivalent, on the one hand, she is clearly critical, even sarcastic, but can not be lost sight of her enormous love for the aesthetics and mood were in it she portrays.

Shana Moulton

Shana Moulton creates evocatively oblique narratives in her video and performance works. Combining an unsettling, wry humor with a low-tech, Pop sensibility, Moulton plays a character whose interactions with the everyday world are both mundane and surreal, in a domestic sphere just slightly askew. As her protagonist navigates the enigmatic and possibly magical properties of her home decor, Moulton initiates relationships with objects and consumer products that are at once banal and uncanny.

Shana studied at the University of California, Berkeley and Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, where she received her MFA. Moulton has also recently attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Skowhegan, Maine, and studied at De Ateliers in Amsterdam. Her videos and Performances have been screened and exhibited internationally and she currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
