Shikeith in i-D

Shikeith was featured in conversation with Cherise Smith in i-D's The Darker Issue. At the crux of the interview, Smith and Shikeith discuss how the artist's practice has developed and transformed over the course of the on-going COVID-19 pandemic. Shikeith states, "I had to really reorganise how I thought. The spaces became a lot more meditative and allowed audiences to go within themselves more, which in the end, thanks to the pandemic, I think was super beneficial." Shikeith's work continually explores themes of space, history, the body, and touch--ranging in form from sculpture, film, photography, and performance. To read more, please visit the i-D website.

Working across film, photography, sculpture, and installation, the visual artist presents work that is edgy, yet sensitive to unspoken truths about identity, transformation, trauma and healing.
