DAF Festival


Kubra se dessine dans des situations mélangées entre le présent et ses souvenirs, projetées par sa fantaisie, ses regrets et son imagination. Dans ces dessins, le spectateur découvre une « petite femme », telle que Kubra se percevait quand elle était enfant : déjà adulte.


Kubra Khademi is an Afghan artist who was born in 1989. She is an Afghan performance artist and a feminist based in Paris. Through her practice, Khademi explores her life as a refugee and a woman. She studied fine arts at Kabul University, before attending Beaconhouse National University in Lahore, Pakistan. In Lahore she began to create public performance, a practice she continued upon her return to Kabul, where her work actively responded to a male dominated society by extreme patriarchal politics. After performing her piece known as Armor in 2015, Khademi was forced to flee her home country. She currently lives and works in Paris, France.

In 2016 she was awarded an MFA Scholarship at Pantheon Sorbonne University and was given the title of Knight of art and literature (Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et Letter) by the Ministry of French Culture.
