Sara Rajaei is an Iranian/Dutch video artist and filmmaker based in The Netherlands.
In her work, she studies the notion of time by reflecting on the absence of image, memory psychology, oral history, narrative techniques, and physical/psychological space. Her artistic oeuvre consists of short films and video installations, which remain in-between storytelling and imagery.
After her graduation from the Royal Academy of Art The Hague in 2002, Rajaei attended a 2-year residency at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten Amsterdam.
In 2009, she was awarded Prix de Rome basic prize.
Her work has been exhibited at various art venues and festivals around the world. Notable shows include de Appel arts center, Stroom Den Haag, Rotterdam film festival, Rencontres Internationales Paris Berlin Madrid, Art Brussels, Stiftelsen 3.14 Bergen/Norway, Museum of Modern & Contemporary art Rijeka/Croatia, Galerie Nouvelles Images, Tent Rotterdam and many more.
