Rehana Zaman: Giantess
21 July 2016 to 9 September 2016 | To be viewed from outside. Fully visible from dusk.
Private view: 21 July, 8–10pm
Part of the Dusk exhibition series curated by A- - -Z at StudioRCA Riverlight.
Rehana Zaman presents a new multi screen video work posing as a fragmented B movie where oil shale mines and ice-skating rinks are stirred by the libidinal figure of a giant amorphous woman. Giantess imagines a future undone by unthinkable, abject and unliveable bodies.
Rehana Zaman is an artist based in London working with moving image and performance. Her work considers the interplay of multiple social dynamics that constitute subjects along particular socio-political formations. These narrative based artworks, often deadpan and neurotic, are generated through conversation and collaboration with others.
Recent screenings and exhibitions include ICA, London, Contemporary Art Tasmania, The Irish Film Institute, Dublin, The Tetley, Leeds, Studio Voltaire, Whitechapel Gallery, London, Berwick Film and Media Festival, Projections Art Rotterdam, Konsthalle C, Stockholm and Baro, São Paolo.
