BIOGRAPHY

Babak Ghazi (b, London, 1977) is the mastermind of an irregularly published magazine called Not Yet—a title that hints at what his overall practice proposes: the idea of things existing in a temporal narrative that is available to him to re-order and re-present. Ghazi's practice draws on notions of appropriation and history; he dips back and reframes past works of art and cultural imagery, presenting them as new, unfamiliar and changed—or simply suddenly remembered—in the present. —Melissa Gronlund
