Saba Askari (US)

Saba Askari is an Iranian-American mixed media artist based in New York City. Her work is informed by a preoccupation with mortality and control in an entropic universe. Traditionally a draftswoman, Saba has grown her artistic practice to include labor intensive performances, which aim to record existence by removing daily object(s) and actions from normative cycles of consumption. Detritus and objects generated during these private performances serve as evidence for presence. In 2018, Saba graduated from Columbia University summa cum laude with a BA in visual arts.
