I’m delighted that Mitra Saboury will be in residence at Grand Union and Millennium Point between 20 July 2015 and 3 August 2015.
Mitra 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. She will be in residence for a two week period at Grand Union and Millennium Point to undertake intense research into the area of Digbeth, exploring the surrounding area, and acting as a personal response to specificities of the place.
This will culminate in a newly commissioned performance to take place in 2016, alongside a solo show of recent film works curated by myself across both sites.
