For her first US solo museum exhibition, she has made a feature-length film, My Bodily Remains, Your Bodily Remains, and all the Bodily Remains that Ever Were and Ever Will Be (2023). The film makes use of emotive effects and passages of digital animation to explore the often overlooked connections between leftist resistance movements over the past 150 years. To accompany the film, Shani has produced a floor-based installation resembling an inverted Medieval ceiling accessorized with an array of artifacts that refer to the film and various literary sources. Drawing on queer and feminist theory, and political ideologies of collectivism, the exhibition ponders love as a device for healing and resistance.
