SHEILA GHELANI


Sheila is an artist whose work spans performance, installation, participatory event and moving image. She enjoys the weight of words when spoken or held and finds multiples of objects and actions arranged in repetitious patterns very reassuring. She likes to cut things up, break things apart and mix things together. She is also very interested in the practice of medicine and care and the relationship between art and science with particular focus on hybridity. She is currently sharing Common Salt with artist Sue Palmer as part of her ongoing Rambles with Nature series, and developing her latest project Elemental.

Common Salt (A Lament)

On Considering The (English) Hedge 

Did we learn nothing? It seems as though people learn nothing...

Common Salt (A Lament) is a specially created ‘cine-poem' by artist and moving image maker Lucy Cash in collaboration with artists Sheila Ghelani and Sue Palmer to accompany their performance Common Salt.

Common Salt is a ‘show and tell’ about history and global power, artefact and trade, race and memory. Read more about Common Salt here.

O long line of green... O Hedge O Hedge...

In August 2013 Sheila spent two weeks in Cambridge with straybird working on Ramble 1 of Rambles with Nature hosted by Cambridge Junction. Together they made a series of four short 'cine-poems' for small screens, such as smartphones, and later presented them as an installation. On Considering The (English) Hedge was the first of the series to be released for viewing.
