WHO IS KÜBRA MUJDE?

Kübra Müjde was born in 1987 in Mesopotamia, in particular in Turkey's southeastern Anatolia region. She is an Arab painter from a Bedouin family, and studied at the High School of Fine Arts, Şanlıurfa, and the University of Arts, Harran. She did a Master in Plastic Arts in Bolu, and is currently in the final stage of her Ph.D. at Yeditepe University. She is currently living in Oxford, pursuing painting and giving workshops to adults and children from different communities and backgrounds.

She has created dozens of works on the theme of sleep over a long period of time, recently renewed by the theme "what I want". She has held and contributed to many exhibitions and installations showcasing her art.

“For a long time I explored sleeping through painting, installation and video. Why? Because there was no clear answer to the causality of the existence of life, and I clearly believed that we were anesthetized by someone, and I justified the reasoning with this answer and slept.

But there was one thing I didn't understand. Why should everything be justified?

Life takes its place in silent laws, which have been accepted to require no evidence and have formed their own cyclic routine.

Now, I draw what I want, no matter, no reason, no meaning”
