Mina Heydari-Waite is a British-Iranian artist and researcher living and working in Glasgow. She practises in a range of settings, working collaboratively with communities as well as creating works across mediums such as installation, sculpture, video and sound for galleries. She seeks to work with a pluralised understanding of the world that foregrounds marginalised ways of knowing and thinking. Her recent work has explored the generative social potential of dream sharing, exploring how it might create possibilities for new thoughts about our shared contexts and issues concerning us collectively.
