Visual artist Urok Shirhan’s work explores the politics of image, sound, and speech in relation to (national) identity. Working mainly with video, performance, and writing, her projects are often entangled with found materials and autobiographic narratives. Her latest body of research considers questions of the voice as well as the tongue in relation to language, phonetics, displacement, and assimilation. Shirhan has an MA from Goldsmiths University of London, London, a BFA from Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam, and has held numerous residencies. Recent presentations have been at MoMA PS1, New York (forthcoming); TENT, Rotterdam, Rotterdam, 2019; AUB Art Galleries, Beirut, 2017–2018; Drodesera Festival, Trento, 2017; Nottingham Contemporary, Nottingham, 2017; Moscow International Biennale for Young Art, Moscow, 2016; Frascati Theatre, Amsterdam, 2016; among others. Shirhan lives and works in Rotterdam and London.
