Pavana Reid was born in Khonkaen, Thailand, in 1963. She moved to Northern Ireland in 1988 (the time of the ongoing political trouble in Northern Ireland).


Pavana began her art education in 2006 by attending night classes and she got her degree in Fine & Applied Art at Ulster University Belfast in 2009.

She works mainly in Performance Art and performance-related photography and moving pictures. She works both in solo and group collective, performance in public space, site-specific and environmental art project.


Based on the complexity of identity - as an individual member of the community local/global - Pavana investigates change and developing identity as a perpetual process within wider notions of social norms. Her performances and actions are intended as narratives that translates into the viewer’s own ideas and hereby become new experiences.
