Tanoa Sasraku

Photographs by Lewis Brander

Tanoa Sasraku (1995, Plymouth, Devon) works with themes examining the intersections of her identity as a young, mixed-race, gay woman and the endeavour to draw these senses of self together as one in 21st century England. Sasraku is based in London, England and her practice shifts between filmmaking and flag-making.

Installation shot at Berwick Film & Media Festival

During her residency Tanoa produced a new work called ‘O’Pierrot’, which premiered at Berwick Film & Media Festival 2019, and was exhibited in a solo show at LUX in March - April 2020, as well as a screening and talk with Rosalind Nashashibi for Art Licks Weekend. Tanoa was also invited to talk about this piece at events at the South London Gallery, the ICA and the BFI. You can read an interview with Tanoa about her work in Elephant.
