Shayna Klee is an American multimedia Artist. She lives and works in Paris, France. She graduated with an MFA in Fine Art from the National School of Arts in Paris-Cergy in June 2021.
Through video, installation sculpture and perfomance , Shayna creates works that are visually tumultuous, appealing to immersive scales, patterns and vivid colors. Her practice is multidisciplinary and variable: from multimedia theater pieces to writing a book (The Purple Palace & other poems ), Shayna seeks to tell stories and create worlds that are both utopique and fragile; where she acts as both consumer and performer.
It is in these hybrid environments that she invites participants to explore with her themes to which she is particularly sensitive; very attentive to new technologies and the issues of her post-internet generation, she mixes satire, writing, sets and performance to create new contemporary fairytales. Through her work she explores recurring themes such as the identities that we cultivate on social networks (our relationship to the digital realm), "pop feminism", social exclusion and the tension between our physical realities and the surreal mind.
Shayna released her debut Poetry collection The Purple Palace & other poems on April 6th of this year.
