2023 Biennial Year Find out more
Kabir utilises woven text/textiles, sound, video, and performance to materialise concepts concerning the cultural politics of cloth, gendered archives, and colonial geographies. Kabir’s (un)weaving performances and tapestries comment on histories of trans-national power, global production, and matrixes of labour. Her textile works uses a queer theory of entanglement to weave discourse around disability, resisting function and the queer racialised body as a living archive of collective trauma.
She has participated in residencies and exhibited work internationally at, among others: The Whitworth, The Tetley, Glasgow International, Craft Council London, Ford Foundation gallery NYC; and has lectured on her research at Tate Modern, Institute of Contemporary Art London, The Courtauld, and the V&A.
