Video: Imran Perretta Shortlisted Artist Profile

Imran Perretta works across the moving-image, sound, performance and poetry. Perretta's practice addresses biopower, marginality and the (de)construction of cultural histories. Underpinning his work are questions of alterity and neo-coloniality, meditating on the process of identity forming in a post-9/11 era characterized by austerity, state-sponsored Islamophobia and the War on Terror.

Recent exhibitions, performances and screenings include Somerset House, London; Selected 8, UK-wide touring show in association with the Film London Jarman Award; PS120, Berlin; Jerwood Space, London; Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge; JVA Solo Presentations, Jerwood Space, London; Chisenhale Gallery, London and Arcadia Missa, London. Perretta was selected for Bloomberg New Contemporaries, World Museum, Liverpool and ICA, London in 2014 and was a resident at Wysing Arts Centre in late 2017.

Forthcoming exhibitions include a new moving image work produced by Chisenhale Gallery, London; Spike Island, Bristol and commissioned by Chisenhale Gallery, London; Spike Island, Bristol; The Whitworth, Manchester; and BALTIC Centre of Contemporary Art, Gateshead and a multi-channel sound work commissioned by Wysing Arts Centre for the 30th anniversary group show.
