About the work
Angela Pralini's Document for Thinking takes it's name from 'A Breath of Life', the 1978 novel by Brazilian author Clarice Lispector. In 'A Breath of Life' the male protagonist creates an imaginary female author, Angela Pralini who comes and goes as he wishes. It is a story of contradiction and paradox that reflects the dark interior dialogue of Lispector’s mind near the end of her life. The ReStack's have dedicated the work to Pralini, but also to Lispector -- and to ways of knowing that privilege corporeal knowledge.
About the artist
Dani and Sheilah ReStack have embarked on an artistic relationship that is formally and emotionally adjacent to their domestic lives, a quotidian zone they share with their daughter Rose. Both artists have established careers on their own. Neither Dani’s video work or Sheilah’s multimedia performance and installation work could exactly prepare us for the force of the women’s collaborative efforts. – Michael Sicinski, Cinema Scope, 2017. ReStack collaborations have shown at the 2017 Whitney Biennial, Iceberg Projects Chicago, Toronto International Film Festival, Images Film Festival, Toronto, Lyric Theater, Carrizozo, NM, The New York Film Festival CURRENTS, Leslie Lohman Project Space, Gaa Wellfleet and The Columbus Museum of Art, Ohio. They have received grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, and the Hanley Award. They have been residents at The Headlands and the MacDowell Colony.
