Kota Khan is a Nigerian non-binary lesbian artist living in Brooklyn, New York. They spend their days blurring the boundaries of intimacy, grief, and childhood through digital media and textiles. As a survivor, they are passionate about exploring the exploitation and abandonment of victims of trauma, illustrating the ways these experiences shape the physical body and social positionality within our communities. Survivorship is often an isolating lived experience full of shame and pressures, but prioritizing community care and material support allows us to move through the pain while experiencing the joy of chosen family and our own rebirth through healing. Their woven tapestries combine oral narratives and digital constructions to elucidate the ambiguous passage from surviving to experiencing genuine love and care for selfhood when words are not enough.
