angel shanel edwards (they/their) creates movement work, film, and writing that celebrate the everyday, embodying the textures of Black queer and transgender existence. Their practices reveal intimacy, rest, and community in domestic settings, outdoors, and in performance spaces, paying close attention to the overlooked joys and obligations of daily life in marginalized communities. edwards’ work centers on subjects of material and emotional wellbeing, employing means like touch, eye contact, and slow movement to generate feelings of connection and abundance. In their piece titled against a backdrop of horror, the mundane is almost a luxury, edwards' collages clips from their personal digital archive—in their bedroom, on their porch, and outside in nature—for a visual poem of movement and daily rituals. They have received grants from the Leeway Foundation, Small But Mighty Arts, and Queer|Art. edwards earned a BFA from Temple University.
