Introducing RUNA ISLAM

The second introduction to the quartet of Turner Prize nominees, Runa Islam graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2004. Born in Dhaka, Bangladesh in 1970, she now works and resides in London.

From White Cube:
Runa Islam makes film and video installations that use overlapping layers of narrative to explore notions of truth and fiction, subjectivity and authorship. Islam installs her films in architectural configurations, frequently presenting them across two or three screens as a framing device. Her work aims to blur the distinctions between film and sculpture, art and cinema, and encourages a range of interpretations from viewers.
