Randa Mirza

Born 1978, Beirut, Lebanon
Lives and works in Marseille, France and Beirut.
Randa Mirza is a protean artist working mainly with photography and video. Rooted in a postcolonial discourse, her work focuses on the idea of identity and seeks to deconstruct and challenge normed, gendered, and orientalizing representations by making present-day symbolic, social, and political constructions visible. Through her work, Mirza tries to give voice to what is unrepresented by questioning the nature of images and their social uses. She has received several awards, including the Prix des Jeux de la Francophonie (2005), Prix la Photographie-Maison Blanche (2013), and the No Limit Award at the 2006 Rencontres d’Arles.
