Kubra Khademi considers herself as a multidisciplinary artist. Interested in subjects of female identity such as sexuality, she has—for the past few years—been creating performances and performative videos where her body is always at the center. Recently, using personal stories as raw material for art, she has returned to her drawing practices of self-portraits and images of women.
Kubra Khademi has exhibited work at Galerie Eric Mouchet, Paris; MUCEM, Marseille; and Palais de Tokyo, Paris, among others.
