Mitra Saboury
In Residence

20 July – 3 August 2015



Mitra Saboury is an artist based between LA and London. She uses her body as a sensual and sentient tool to explore architecture and the built environment. She explores in particular those aspects of place that are usually neglected or overlooked.

In July 2015 Mitra spent two weeks in residence at Grand Union and Millennium Point where she undertook intense research into the area of Digbeth, exploring the surrounding area, and acting as a personal response to specificities of the place. While in residence Mitra made a series of video works entitled ‘Cavities’ in Digbeth using concrete creations she had made (see images).

Mitra’s residency will culminate in a newly commissioned performance to take place in 2016, alongside a solo show of recent film works.

You can view all of Mitra’s ‘Cavities’ videos here.
