Rehana Zaman is an artist based in London. She works predominantly with moving image and performance to examine how social dynamics are produced and performed. Her work speaks to the entanglement of personal experience and social life where intimacy is framed against the hostility of state legislation, surveillance and control. She was the recipient of a British Council research grant with Museo de Art Carrillo Gil, Mexico City (2015), a Gasworks International Fellowship to Beirut (2013), and was a LUX Associate Artist (2012–13). Recent and upcoming solo exhibitions include Serpentine Projects, London, UK (2019), Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2018, Kerala, India, Liverpool Biennial 2018, Liverpool, UK; CCA, Glasgow, UK (2018); and Material Art Fair IV, Mexico City, Mexico (2017). Her films and installations have been shown at ICA Miami, Sheffield Doc Film Festival, Oberhausen Film Festival, ICA and Whitechapel, London and Bétonsalon Paris. In 2017 Zaman was awarded the Paul Hamlyn Award for Artists.
