Sukaina Kubba

Sukaina Kubba is a multidisciplinary and material-based artist whose work is strongly rooted in material and cultural research, story-telling, and drawing connections. Kubba works with industrial and packaging materials as signifiers and concrete indices, and explores traveling objects, textiles and vehicles as carriers of cross-cultural histories. She depicts rugs as peripatetic architectural components rolled and unfurled by nomads and migrants and put over sand, rocks, floors, and walls to denote a re-location.

Sukaina Kubba has exhibited work at The Next Contemporary, Toronto; Aga Khan Museum, Toronto; and Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow, among others.
