Mitra Saboury: Cavities

A number of film stills from Mitra Saboury‘s residency with Grand Union, 20 July – 3 August 2015.

Mitra made these films in response to and relation to her time spent Digbeth, a light-industrial area of Birmingham where Grand Union is located. Based in Los Angeles, her work investigates the consumption of her body by the built environment.
