Join us for an in-conversation as part of Selected 11, with artists Roxy Rezvany, Aoibheann Greenan, and Katayoun Jalilipour, chaired by writer, Ian Haydn Smith.

Selected brings together some of the best work from early career film and video artists from across the UK in a vibrant programme of recent artists’ moving image.

The Selected programme was established 11 years ago with the aims of supporting artist filmmakers to gain greater visibility and to bring new, diverse moving image work to audiences. Each year the artists who are shortlisted for the Film London Jarman Award nominate artists who are earlier in their careers and from those nominations a programme is curated by videoclub and Film London Artists' Moving Image Network (FLAMIN). The nominators for this year's programme of Selected (and the artists shortlisted for the Jarman Award in 2020) are: Michelle Williams Gamaker, Hannah Quinlan & Rosie Hastings, Jenn Nkiru, Project Art Works, Larissa Sansour and Andrea Luka Zimmerman.

The artists for the 11th programme of Selected are: River Yuhao Cao, Sam Grant, Aoibheann Greenan, Katayoun Jalilipour, Roxy Rezvany and Gaby Sahhar.

Aoibheann Greenan is an Irish artist working across installation, sculpture, drawing, live performance, and moving image. Her work centres around the theme of experience design, exploring the modes of mediation underlying our encounters with products, services, events, and environments. Greenan's projects consider our enmeshment in networks that continually harness our unpaid productivity and the means by which they modulate our attention. They amplify the haptic and affective qualities of media infrastructures in order to elicit these underlying mechanisms. Aoibheann’s work has recently been selected for New Contemporaries 2021. Her work has been presented at The Starr Cinema, Tate Modern; DRAF, London; Raven Row, London; KW institute, Berlin; Import Projects, Berlin; IMMA, Dublin; Project Arts Centre, Dublin; Temple Bar Gallery, Dublin; EVA International, Limerick; The RHA, Dublin. Greenan is a co-founder of artist collective East London Cable.

Ian Haydn Smith is a journalist and editor who writes and broadcasts on the visual arts.

Katayoun Jalilipour is an Iranian-born multidisciplinary artist, performer and writer based in the UK. Through humour, provocation and storytelling, their practice uses the body as the subject to talk about race, gender identity, and sexuality. Their work takes an experimental approach, in which they create an environment for new languages and possibilities arising. They work in a variety of mediums including video, GIFs, installation, and live performance, using fictions and speculative histories to re-tell stories through a queer and intimate lens. Katayoun has been awarded bursaries from the Live Art Development Agency and Jerwood Arts. They are an associate lecturer on BA Performance: Design and Practice at Central Saint Martins.

Roxy Rezvany is an award-winning British filmmaker whose work aims to expand perceptions of British identity, and bring marginalised narratives to the mainstream. In 2018, she was recognised by The Dots as a Creative Trailblazer, featured in It’s Nice That’s Creative Review, and was on the cover of Broadcast Magazine’s ‘Hot Shots’ magazine issue. Her debut film Little Pyongyang (2018) premiered in competition at CPH:Dox Festival, and was the recipient of awards including Best Director at Underwire Film Festival, Best Documentary at The Smalls Film Festival. Her follow up piece Like A Fish Out Of Water (2020) was commissioned by the Barbican, and has screened at the BFI. She has directed films for the BBC, Victoria Miro, VICE and The Guardian.
