Samiir Saunders (he/him) is an artist, poet and filmmaker based in Birmingham. He creates poetry films, poetry performances, poetry installations and browser-based artworks. Samiir’s practice explores how the context of spaces, both digital and physical, are charged with meaning and therefore influence the stories told within them. His recent work navigates the aesthetics and limitations of Instagram video poetry. He uses this space to speak about anxiety, Queer Black Masculinity, and the constraints of digital communication.
