About the Artist
Mitra Saboury is an artist based in Los Angeles who uses her body as a sensual and sentient tool to navigate the built environment. Working across video and performance, she often explores aspects of place, particularly those that are neglected or overlooked.
Saboury graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh, then went on to study Fine Art with an MFA from Goldsmiths University in 2013. She has presented recent solo exhibitions at Out_Sight, Seoul (2018), Grand Union Gallery, Birmingham (2016), and Chin’s Push, Los Angeles (2016). She’s also featured in group exhibitions The Fondle Tour (2018), An Eyeful of Wry, Hull (2017), FRESH_MEET, East Bristol Contemporary (2017), and Left Hand to Back of Head, Bluecoat Gallery, Liverpool (2016). She is one half of the photographic collaborative Meatwreck with Derek Paul Jack Boyle (@meatwreck).
