Iman Issa (Cairo, 1979) is an artist living and working in Cairo and New York. Her most recent solo exhibition, Material, took place at the Rodeo Gallery in Istanbul, in addition to selected shows including at the KW Institute of Contemporary Art, Berlin, the Sculpture Center in New York, the Contemporary Image Collective in Cairo and the Art Dubai Special Projects. Her videos have been screened at the Tate Modern, London, Spacex, Exeter, Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool, and at the Bidoun Artists Cinema, Dubai. In her practice Issa deals with questions of language, place, methodically questioning the relationship between history, the city, personal cognition and experience. Lyrical and encrypted, her works pose systematic questions, a little off-centre, insinuating narrative and always resisting placement or definition.
