CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE / 2018

Conspiracy of Silence is an exploration of the transactional nature of relationships, and of the spaces in which they occur. The works call to mind a landscape of strip clubs, seedy motels, restaurant kitchens, and parking lots – sites where the body is often reduced to a commodity of exchange and exploitation are pervasive. However, Malek eschews such a reductive reading, blurring the line between victim and perpetrator, and illuminating the multiple roles we can play simultaneously.
