As an intersectional artist, Vanane focuses on the way that different types of discrimination—such as xenophobia, misogyny, or ageism—can converge and impact individuals and groups, and their work explores these complex interactions.
Intersectionality ‘underscores the ‘multidimensionality’ of marginalized subjects’ lived experiences``(Crenshaw, 1989). It is the concept used to describe how oppressive systems are interconnected. Factors of oppressive systems are class, ability, education, gender, sexuality, race/ethnicity, and weight. The more of these factors included in an identity, the more our society restricts one on a basis of that identity.
