ARTIST OF THE WEEK

n°200/ Hayv Kahraman

December 2016

by Nathalie Azoulai

Born in Bagdad in 1981, artist Hayv Kahraman left Iraq for Sweden, Sweden for Italy, Italy for the US where she currently lives. She knows about refugees and speaking new languages as shown in Migrant 3, an elegant and violent self-portrait where she cuts off her (mother) tongue with golden cisors. Amazing fabrics. Dancing grace.
