And then you are banned to the desert of exotisme / Jack Smith ....
Rosh Zeeba was born in Tehran, Iran. They studied applied performance studies in Giessen, Germany at Justus-Liebieg-University and timebased media and film at the Academy of Fine Arts in Hamburg, Germany.
Using expanded media with a performativ approach allowed them to rethink the idea of story-telling and open up the realm of orientalistic futurism. Zeeba engages with postdramatic cinema, cyberfeminism as well as queer theory.
Personas in their works are constructed units that are related to the idea of Derrida’s simulacrum. The performative and temporary unit is a conglomerate of samples that can be zoomed into or be looked at from afar. The idea of past, present and future fades into a momentum as the same unit (performer) you see in the video projection is bodily present and spreads its samples like relics into the exhibition space.
The story tells itself and interweaves through space, image and spectator.
Rosh Zeeba works as a performance-and videoartist, filmmaker and gives workshops and lectures on postdramatic and feminist filmmaking. Her works and lectures has taken place in Blicke Filmfestival (Bochum, GER), Balkan Can Kino (Athens, GRK), Tetem (Enschde/ (NL), MOM art space and RaumLinksRechts (Hamburg,GER), Filmarche, Berlin, (GER).
