BIO

Fanny Zaman (BE) is an audiovisual artist working in Antwerp. She had a practical as well as a theoretical training in visual art, Cultural Studies, Information Science, Performance and SoundDesign. Since 2000 she started experimenting with video- and sound-montage at the Higher Institute of Fine Arts (HISK). The period closed with a residence at Cité des Arts, Paris. In 2008 she made the film Surface that was screened at FIDMarseille. In 2009 she started a 2-year experimental Advanced Performance Training (a.pass) with Elke Van Campenhout. Here Zaman started experimenting with performance in film and capturing natural group dynamic/choreographies. She made a 40 minutes essay film Song Mountain Area, THE CENTRE DIRECTION about group-choreography in the centre of China, again screened at FIDMarseille 2010. With a.pass she made a publication about the work. After that she made 3 more essay film (about the world of finance/markets) with a focus on group-dynamic (in the pit) and speech-act. The films were screened in several filmfestivals and art institutions amongst BOZAR, LE BAL and WIELS where she did a 6 months residency in 2012.
After that she realized 2 found footage films dealing with Belgian post war history concerning awakening, emancipation, halt and decay. The focus of her artistic research producing these works is on how material (sound, image and technology) is mutual shaped (by us) and reshaping our political understanding of the world we live in.
Currently Zaman is working in collaboration with Dominik Daggelinckx on the film THE AIRSHIP that looks at the collateral effects of social media and technology through aesthetics and materiality. 
About her work text has been published by Arnaud Claass, Jean-Pierre Rehm and Mihnea Mircan.
