Visiting Artist’s Talk – Rehana Zaman

Video still: Rehana Zaman, Sharla Shabana Sojourner Selena (2016)

Rehana Zaman works predominantly with moving image and performance. Her practice is concerned with how individuals and groups relate amidst the affects of multiple social dynamics. These narrative-based pieces, often deadpan and neurotic, are frequently generated through conversation and collaboration with others.

Solo exhibitions include ‘Tell me the story Of all these things’ commissioned by Tenderpixel (London), Material Art Fair IV in Mexico City (both 2017), ‘Some Women, Other Women and all the Bittermen’ commissioned by The Tetley (Leeds, 2014) and ‘I, I, I, I and I’ commissioned by Studio Voltaire (London, 2013). She has contributed to group exhibitions and screenings at Raven Row (London), Eastside Projects (Birmingham), ICA (London), Contemporary Art Tasmania, The Irish Film Institute (Dublin) and Konsthalle C (Stockholm).

In 2017 Zaman was the recipient of a Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award for Artists. She is currently working on new commissions as part of Liverpool Biennial and Serpentine Projects, London.

The venue for this talk is Lecture Theatre F (G.74), Chemistry West Block, University of Leeds. Directions to the venue can be found online here.

The VAT series hosts talks by an exciting range of arts practitioners from around the world every Monday afternoon 14:00 to 15:30 during teaching weeks.

All of our talks are compulsory for all Fine Art students but open to anyone else who would like to join us.
