Launching our 2017 UWE/Art in the City series, Shezad Dawood talks about his recent work.
Shezad Dawood works across film, painting and sculpture to juxtapose discrete systems of image, language, site and narrative, using the editing process as a method to explore meanings and forms between film and painting. His practice often involves collaboration, working with groups and individuals across different territories to physically and conceptually map far-reaching lines of enquiry. These networks chart different geographic locations and communities and are particularly concerned with acts of translation and re-staging. Shezad will talk about his recent work including his major new ten-part film Leviathan.
Shezad Dawood was born in London in 1974 and trained at Central St Martin’s and the Royal College of Art before undertaking a PhD at Leeds Metropolitan University. He is a Jarman Award nominee, and one of the winners of the Abraaj Capital Art Prize.
