Sheila Ghelani

Sheila makes work that manifests in a range of media (video, object, participatory event, performance etc). She works both as a solo and collaborative artist.

She has shown work at venues and festivals across Europe including Belluard Bollwerk International in Switzerland and the Wellcome Collection in London.

As a collaborative artist she is a long-standing Associate Artist of Blast Theory and has toured and performed nationally and internationally for them and many other companies.  She also teaches in Academic contexts and regularly mentors artists and students and gives public talks.

Her work is informed by her own experience of being mixed heritage. She is interested in the relationship between art and science with particular focus on hybridity, crossings, blood, skins, skinning, carefully controlled experiments, colour, genetics and love.
