Shabnam Shabazi is a multi-disciplinary ‘artivist,’ a maker and enabler of creative projects. Working with object, video / digital media; text, performance, collage and installation. Participation and creating platforms to give voice to important issues are at the heart of Shabnam’s practice. Her work is autobiographical and archival. Exploring notions of home, place, displacement, identity and the body.
Recent and ongoing research includes exploring the idea of the body as a house and investigating stories from ourselves, stories from within. The interstices and intersections between art forms and cultures animate her practice. Committed to a ’without walls’ approach. Interested in site-specific work and subverting use of existing spaces.
