Kubra Khademi

Biography

Kubra Khademi is an Afghan artist born in 1989. She is a performer and a feminist based in Paris. Through her practice, Kubra Khademi explores her life as a refugee and a woman. She studied fine arts at the University of Kabul, before joining the University of Beaconhouse in Lahore, Pakistan. In Lahore she began to create public performances, a practice which she continued upon her return to Kabul, where her work was a response to a male-dominated society with an extreme patriarchal policy. After performing her piece known as “The armor” in 2015, she was forced to flee her homeland and has been a refugee in France until 2020 when she obtained French nationality. It is in Paris that she lives and works nowadays. In 2016, she received a scholarship to the Pantheon-Sorbonne University and Audrey Azoulay, Minister of Culture, raised her to the rank of “Chevalier des arts et des lettres”. She is a member of the “Atelier des Artistes en Exil”. Since 2016, Latitudes Prod. has been in charge of the development of her artistic projects, in particular performative and since 2020 Eric Mouchet gallery–Paris, represents her visual work. In 2019, she was named to the Emerige revelation prize and in 2020, she is in long-term residence at the Fiminco Foundation.
