ARTIST INFO

About 

Athen Kardashian & Nina Mhach Durban are an artist duo who live and work in London. Their collaborative practice has been formed by an ongoing dialogue concerning their joint experience of being raised in London to Indian mothers. Noticeboards reminiscent of school and work become sculptures as the duo curate their collection of found images and trinkets, positioned at the hand of conversations regarding family, displacement, and migration. In utilising glamorous Bollywood headshots and diasporic, domestic objects they reference matriarchal upbringings, diasporic femininity, and the nostalgia inherent to reflection upon 'teenagehood’ and childhood. Exhibitions include Athen & Nina: Sleepover, Gathering, London, 2023, Full Fat Cola, WASTE! STORE, London; Beauty Tech Art Spa, Cornershop, London 2023; Fear of the Dark: Viewing Room, SOUP, London, 2023; First Edition, Collective Ending, London, 2023; The State of It, GALLERY 46, London, 2023; Fracture Me Tenderly, Greatorex Street, London; (Homing, or), Keepsake Project, London, 2023; The Ultimate Bootleg Experience, Studio Chapple, London 2023.
