rababgRabab Ghazoul
lives in Cardiff and creates process-based projects that explore, with others, our relationship to the political. Her interests lie in a sense of place, belonging and how we connect. Her practice often sees her drawing on text, language, performance and conversations that result lead to diverse works – from a choral performance to a procession to a gathering. Originally from Iraq she has exhibited internationally, including as part of the Iraqi Pavilion at 56th Venice Biennale. Find out more about Rabab’s work for Its art but its not.
