Nina Mhach Durban (She/her)

Artist living and working in London. Nina frequently works as part of an artist duo with Athen Kardashian.

Nina Mhach Durban is a multidisciplinary artist preoccupied with physical and sensory ways of engaging with the diasporic experience. By way of a sculptural interaction with found images, she preserves and celebrates British Asian histories through the creation of an alternative, expanded archive, closely informed by her own familial experience of postcolonial migration. 

Nina is also a member of artist collective Colours of Art School , the online art school for people of colour.
