In a radical departure from her usual practice of site-specific projects, Natascha Sadr Haghighian’s first solo exhibition in London is a selection of works from the last fifteen years. She describes her work as a continual process of interrogation and unhinging of sociopolitical hierarchies and conventions; of seeking to defrock and de-stabilise systems of representation and authority.
