Mohammad Namazi (b. 1981 Tehran) is a visual artist based in London. Namazi’s work comprises trans or multi-media characteristics of visual expressions that have commonalities with the vocabulary of site-specific installations, public participatory activities and design practices.
The temporal tensions between transience and permanency, or kinesis and stasis, have been a constant area of research, exploring polarity subjects such as rights of individuals, consumerism, the political exchange of power and hospitality. This is often reflected through the production of sculptures, drawings, moving image, sound installations, graphic design, photography, internet based artworks, workshops and performance.
Namazi received his MA from the Royal College of Art in 2009. He is a recipient of the MAN Drawing prize (2009) and the MFI residency at the Flat Time House (2013). He has recently completed his solo exhibition at BALTIC 39 in Newcastle and currently is working towards his residency project at Index collective (‘Wort und Wirkung’) in Zürich for September-October 2016. He is a doctoral researcher at the UAL Research Centre in London.
