Shezad Dawood

Shezad Dawood's work explores the multiple possibilities engendered by the play between cultures, histories and fictions. Notions of authorship and representation are deconstructed by working with a steady stream of collaborators mapping cross cultural influences and trajectories.

Working through film, video and painting Dawood questions the performative process of image making and dissemination, moving through various points of identification and visual systems such as science fiction and the occult.    

Dawood's most recent solo exhibition has toured Modern Art Oxford, Newlyn Art Gallery and The Exchange, Penzance and Norway.  In 2013 he curated an important exhibition at the Devi Art Foundation, Delhi.
