"Triple Immigration" a multimedia installation exploring themes of queerness, nationality, immigration, and the conflict that arises between traditional family expectation and one's own personal journey.

Collaging intimate interviews, nonfiction and fictional narrative, documentary and a diverse range of other video methodologies, Dothan’s kaleidoscopic installation sets screens and projections into an immersive painted environment. The viewer pieces together the inherent conflict that arises when one confronts the complexities of public and personal personas.

Shasha Dothan is a Brooklyn-based artist working with video and installation. Dothan’s art reveals an ongoing debate between the power structures that built her way of thought and her subjective experience. Dothan’s work addresses conflicts: being a queer woman, an Israeli, an immigrant to the USA, an occupier, a victim and an oppressor. Her work is always deeply inspired by the environment she lives in.
