“I was really into painting and sculpture growing up. All the more plastic studio arts. But after I graduated (from art school) I didn’t have the funds for a studio, storage, or materials to continue with that. I turned to performance partly for practical reasons, but also because it interested me politically. I liked that performance can do away with material project; it is mobile so it can be taken anywhere.” Multidisciplinary artist and performer Sadaf invites you into her strange world through what could be described as sensory shock therapy. Her experimental music, immersive performances, and uncanny videos can be unsettling, but are always a fruitful experience. “No wave and other movements made it easier to assert oneself as a multidisciplinary artist, without the fear of being good enough. I was able to get into music without much training, because I was confident in experimenting with different mediums.”
