From the artist’s bio: Saba Taj is a visual artist based in Durham, NC. Inspired by Islamic stories, sci-fi and revolution, Taj’s work explores representation, the gaze, queerness and the body. Their work employs interdisciplinary practices including mixed-media drawing, painting and collage, sewing and performance. Through these techniques, Taj seeks to celebrate subjects who are often characterized as monstrous, highlighting their hybridity and liminality as an embodied resistance to subjugation. Taj was the 2019-2020 post-MFA Fellow for the Documentary Diversity Project at CDS, former executive director of the Carrack Modern Art, Southern Constellations Fellow at Elsewhere Museum, and featured speaker at TEDxDuke in 2017.
