Shezad Dawood


Shezad Dawood (b. London, 1974) works across film, painting, and sculpture to juxtapose discrete systems of image, language, site and multiple narratives, 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 inquiry. These networks map across geographic locations and communities and are particularly concerned with acts of translation and re-staging. His recent video work, Towards the Possible Film (2014), shot on location in Sidi Ifni, Morocco, explores anthropological concepts of indigenousness through the genre of science fiction.
