Iman Issa’s practice seeks to pick out experiences of the personal from the collective. Her narrative-based works function through taking stories out of the specificity of a context, and opening them up to the associative potential of the viewer. The Revolutionary is an audio piece, written by the artist and generated using text to speech software. The work presents a fictional narrative that interweaves a biographical portrait of a radical political figure and questions around the term ‘revolutionary,’ the meaning it could evoke and what it could refer to in the present day.
