Born in Kabul and currently residing in Los Angeles, Lida Abdul is an Afghan artist who has created a unique body of work that systematically refers to the context of the war in Afghanistan. Her artworks, performances, videos, and photographs reveal this country’s other realities. The images that we so often see of Afghanistan through the media are of war and soldiers. On the contrary, Lida Abdul seeks to capture life in this country, and how the people carry the wounds of the fighting, how human beings confront a terrible event without the necessary tools to comprehend what is happening.
