Maria Kheirkhah is a British-Iranian multidisciplinary artist, researcher, and curator. Her artworks are generated by the interplay of history, politics, media, and materiality, that is realized through writing, curating, installation, film, photography, and performance. Kheirkhah’s multidisciplinary practice draws upon the relationship between history and the contemporary, centre and the peripheries as a means of exploring diasporic social experiences and creative responses.
Her practice engages with gender and globalization (transnational feminism), comparative visual aesthetics, the politics of visual and material culture, image making and representation. Further exploring the important role of women, the politicisation of their bodies and the codifying of their attire, to critically evaluate the relationship between representation, geography, artistic productions, and platforms.
