Sadaf H. Nava is an Iranian-born, New York-based director, visual artist and composer whose multidisciplinary interventions include film, sound, drawing, painting and performance. She released her debut EP with LA-based record label Outside Insight, and her first full-length LP, History of Heat, on Blueberry Records.
Nava's work uses visuals, sonics and confrontational tactics to upend contemporary performance. Her paintings and visual work follow a similar process of improvisation, with a focus on key themes including self-portraiture, fragmented narratives and reenacted memory.
Sadaf has presented work at the Museum of Modern Art's PS1 Warm Up and Sunday Sessions, Issue Project Room, the ninth Berlin Biennale and the Museum of Fine Arts Montreal. They have been featured by titles such as The Guardian, i-D and The Wire.
