Fatima Khademi’s practice traverses diverse media from painting and sculpture to performance and video, with her artworks unified by their deeply personal focus. Choosing quiet reflectivity over overt politicism, Khademi’s artworks engage in identity politics and grow out of poignant childhood memories and experiences , drawing audiences into sharp commentaries on the socio-political situation and ongoing conflict faced by her people. In this sense, Khademi uses her own intimate experiences to bring forth universally relevant conversations about ethnicity, oppression and displacement. This is particularly evident in her performance works whereby her body itself becomes a tool for communication.
Khademi received her FSC degree from Afghan lycce “Istiqlal High School” in Quetta in 2016. In 2018 she was awarded the UMISAA scholarship and is now in the third year of her Fine Art BA at Beaconhouse National University in Lahore, Pakistan.
