An artist working primarily with moving image, Rehana Zaman says that what fascinates her about this medium is how ‘it opens up different ways of telling stories.’ Her narratives are seldom straightforward. They often depend on conversation, but also involve fragmentation, interruption and visual juxtapositions. Her work is often collaborative – How Does an Invisible Boy Disappear? (2018) was made with a group of young women of Pakistani and Somali heritage from Liverpool – and much of it, including the films Your Ecstatic Self (2019) and Tell me the story Of all these things (2017), concerns alternative epistemologies, kinship and intimacy as seen from South Asian perspectives.
Rehana Zaman (born 1982, Heckmondwike) lives and works in London. Zaman studied at Goldsmiths, University of London.
