Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley

Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley is an artist working predominantly in animation and sound, combining the two in a way to communicate their experience and survival as a Black Trans person. Danielle’s work uses sound emphatically to further communicate intense expression as they digitally construct a world that centers Black Trans experience in both design and content. Storing and wanting to restore Black Trans existence they explore a desire to meet buried bodies like theirs, dreaming of a Trans archive where Black Trans people could share their buried experiences.
They have performed at the Tate, the Barbican, Auto Italia and Frieze Art Fair.
