Razan AlSalah

Razan is a Palestinian artist and teacher based in Tiotiake/Montreal. 

Her films work with the material aesthetics of appearance and disappearance of indigenous bodies, narratives and histories in colonial image worlds. 

She often works with sound-images to infiltrate borders that have severed us from the land. Her films are both ghostly trespasses, and seeping ruptures, of the colonial image, that functions as a border, as a wall.

She thinks of her creative process as a circle of relations with artists, friends, family, technology, images, plants, objects and sounds…These relations become different points of entry and exit into elsewheres here, where colonialism no longer makes sense.
