Maral Mamaghanizadeh wins Arts Council England Grant

Deaf Explorer are delighted that Maral Mamaghanizadeh has received funding from Arts Council England

“If you want to be alive, read my lips” gives audiences, participants and wearers of unique jewellery to gain an insight into the challenges of communicating in a male-dominated society. Two experiences amplify this challenge. I am Deaf & have successfully sought asylum from a country that identifies my work as political & challenging of a traditional masculinity. To do this I need to R & D making ceramic over-ear pieces; that give a distorted experience of the world. My aim, to make large-scale happenings about wearing the sound altering jewellery & find partners to support production.

Maral will be mentored and supported By Craft space and Ikon Gallery

Maral is enjoying Gallery 37 In Birmingham. Recommend following her Instagram
