Narda Azaria Dalgleish


As an experimental moving image and installation artist, I draw on various personal and cultural sources to interface the visible world with the invisible realm of mysteries, using my poetry and my vocal experimentations with layering narrations.
Since I started in September 2014, making films and installations proved to be not only a means for an artistic end, but very much a journey of self discovery. I am increasingly astonished to notice the extent of space my ancient ancestral roots are claiming in my work.
Dating back to over 2500 years of ancestral exile in the Babylonian diaspora, the richness of the Semitic root languages – Hebrew and Arabic – the Biblical stories, the cultures – both spiritual and secular, all that, and being an ‘exile’ myself, so to speak, mirror back to me through my work an expanded sense of identity I have not experienced before.
