Our artist-in-residence for Trinity Term is Dr Azadeh Fatehrad, an artist and curator based at the Visual and Material Culture Research Centre, Kingston University London

Azadeh Fatehrad artist in residence 2018Dr Azadeh Fatehrad works primarily with still and moving images in the context of historical representation.  As she explains: 'My practice is intertwined around a process of gathering information and generating new imagery in response to archival material I discover. It ranges from still and moving images to fictional stories, short films and artists' books. 

My current research is entitled Double Agency: The Formation of Diaspora in Moving Image Practice. My interdisciplinary research overlaps with political science, sociology, representation, photography and moving image, and architecture.

Azadeh will give a lecture about her work on 3 May 2018 at 5.30pm in The Barn gallery. 

She will be working with students in College during her residency, and is planning a performance event for the week of 4-11 June.
