Rehana ZamanImagesBio

Rehana Zaman

(b 1982, Heckmondwike UK) is 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 pieces, often deadpan and neurotic, are frequently generated through conversation and collaboration with others.
