Event description: 

Shezad Dawood talks with Zoé Whitley, director, Chisenhale Gallery, London.
Dawood is a multidisciplinary artist who interweaves stories, realities, and symbolism to create richly layered artworks, spanning digital media, film, painting, sculpture, and textiles. He trained at Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art before undertaking a PhD at Leeds Metropolitan University. Fascinated by ecologies and architecture, Dawood takes a philosophical approach in his work, asking questions and exploring alternative futures through what he calls “world building” and “imagineering.” His practice is animated by research and by collaboration with multiple audiences and communities to delve into embodiment, history, and narrative.
