Khadija Baker (Montreal)
in residence at MAWA August 19-31, 2018
Artist Talk Thursday, August 23, 7pm at MAWA
Khadija Baker is multi-disciplinary artist of Kurdish-Syrian descent. Her installations investigate social and political themes centred on the uncertainty of home as it relates to persecution, identity, displacement and memory. Her most recent interdisciplinary installations (textile, sculpture, audio/video) involve participative storytelling and performance. They explore the social aspects of violence in the Arab world, and specifically how it affects women and children. While in Winnipeg, Baker will be meeting with various communities to create a story exchange. She is interested in bringing newly arrived Syrian refugees together with hosting communities through workshops: one child + one parent + one story + one drawing.
