multimedia installation and performance
The two piece installation of Nika “Funeral and Birthday” is about reflecting about the personal and systemic structure of identity and heritage. The artist exploding the many layered themes in this project. First and foremost she uses herself as her primary media that she believes can reflect best on the woman’s ever ending role in an Azerbaijan and in a global context. She is a woman of both worlds. Each time she buries herself, her identity together with all her ideas and birthday herself again. She is her own creator, her own mother, her own parent. She isn’t an extension of anyone.
