Shahryar Nashat Biography

Shahryar Nashat’s works interrogate dramatic structures and are characterised by an emphasis on display, staging and rehearsal. Often addressing representations of the body in art history, Nashat is interested in the conventions of presentation and mediation, drawing the viewer into an otherwise unknown world of artful gestures in the process.
