Artists Index: Katayoun Jalilipour

Katayoun Jalilipour (b. 1995, Isfahan) is an Iranian-born multidisciplinary artist, performer and writer based in the Midlands. Through humour, provocation and storytelling their practice uses the body as the subject to talk about race, gender identity and sexuality. They work in a variety of mediums including moving image, installation, drawing, text and live performance. They use speculative histories and fictions to re-tell stories through a queer lens, and they have an ongoing body of research looking for fragments of queerness hidden in Iran’s Qajar era. Katayoun is an associate lecturer on BA Performance: Design and Practice at Central Saint Martins.
