Rabab Ghazoul

Rabab Ghazoul is a visual artist whose work explores our negotiations of the political – the nuance of private and public affiliation and the relationship of wider (political) frameworks upon the personal, and the daily. Working both within and beyond conventional contemporary art settings, there is always some element of engagement within her practice. Utilising a variety of media (including video, installation, text, performance, conversation, interventions and encounters) Rabab raises questions to herself and others around what words such as ‘community’, ‘democracy’, ‘together’ or ‘belonging’ could mean. Born in Mosul, Iraq, she has lived and worked in Cardiff, Wales, since 1993 www.rababghazoul.com.
