Saghiaa, the VJ persona of Saghi Ehteshamzadeh, is a queer Iranian interdisciplinary artist whose work spans video art, live visual performances, new media, and installations. Saghi’s art practice draws inspiration from their personal experiences navigating disabilities and advocating for social justice, particularly within Iran and the ongoing struggle for wxmen's equality. Their work is characterized by a unique blend of compressed, low-resolution imagery and pixel manipulation and their live visuals feature a fusion of exotic retro videos alongside digital scans of nature and urban environments.

We're grateful to collaborate and produce on the shared, stolen, unceded, ancestral and traditional territories of Penelakut, Lamalcha, Hwitslum and other Hul’qumi’num speaking peoples, as well as the ceded territories of Tsawwassen First Nation, on what is now known as Galiano Island, British Columbia. We recognize the complex impacts that hosting settlers and non-settlers has on the Indigenous land and peoples of this area, and we aim to be responsible and accountable for these impacts and our footprint—whether cultural, environmental or social.

We acknowledge the generous support of our partners and funders:
