Matilda Aslizadeh

Matilda Aslizadeh deploys a dense visual language positioned between photography, video, sculpture and animation to evoke the complexity and saturation of contemporary media landscapes. Her video installations draw on a large array of visual influences – both esoteric and popular – to rethink narrative structures that persist in Western culture and its global impact. Her current project interrogates the agency of the economy under neoliberalism through the lens of a horror film.

Matilda Aslizadeh has exhibited work at Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto CanadaArt Souterrain, Montreal; and Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival and Awards.
