Sayed Sattar Hasan is a British born artist and Goldsmiths, MA, graduate (2009) currently based in Oslo, Norway. Hasan uses a variety of mediums from lens-based media to sculptural installation, and describes himself as a process- based artist.
His practice explores notions of tradition, heritage and belonging and how they are continually subject to change. Hasan often produces autobiographical narratives, based on his relationships with people, places and belief systems, and looks to express the fragility, humour and complexity of everyday life in his work. Influenced by his mixed-race identity, Hasan likes to negotiate tensions drawn by cultural and historical lines by embracing identity as a hybrid condition and expressing himself in unorthodox ways.
Hasan has had solo shows at Stephen Lawrence Gallery, UK (2017), New Art Exchange, UK (2016) and NN Contemporary, UK (2015)., and his work has appeared in international art and photography festivals such as 2nd Changjiang, Video and Photography Biennale, China (2017), EM Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale (2015).
He has produced several public installations; Southbank Centre, London, UK (Alchemy, 2017) and Heathrow Terminal 5 (2012) and participated on international artist residency programmes at the National College of Art, Lahore, Pakistan (2014) and The Baltic residency exchange program between the UK and South Korea (2018).
