Rehana Zaman is London-based artist, working with moving image and performance. Her work considers the interplay of multiple social dynamics that constitute subjects along socio-political formations. These narrative based pieces, often deadpan and neurotic, are frequently generated through conversation and collaboration with others.
She holds a BA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths, University of London and completed her MFA in Fine Art at the same place in 2011. She was awarded the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award in 2017; a British Council research grant with Museo de Art Carrillo Gil, Mexico City in 2015 and a Gasworks International Fellowship to Beirut in 2013. Zaman was a LUX Associate Artist in 2012/2013. She is a lecturer on the BA Fine Art programme at Goldsmiths, University of London.
In 2018 Rehana’s Sharla Shabana Sojourner Selena (2016) was screened at Iniva’s ‘Research Network: The Difference That Difference Makes’ as part of the ‘Duties of Self-Care’ public programme in the context of a presentation of research by Dr Maria Walsh.
