An Emerging Artist & Art Historian
Danielle Andréa Krikorian is an art historian and early career artist. She is a Midlands4Cities (M4C) and AHRC funded Doctoral Researcher at the University of Birmingham. Her research focuses on Lebanese women artists during the civil war. This includes the expression of trauma, testimony, abstraction, and Islamic art.
Her latest article ‘Shaping Space. Morphologies and transitions in the Umayyad madīna ‘Anjar’ is published in ‘Le città del Mondo Islamico’ at DAr Journal.
Artistically, Krikorian engages with the visualisation of trauma, memory and the androgynous body. One aspect explores the relationship between light, ink, colour, and its creation of intimacy between the viewer and the image. This relationship is meant to convey an experience and/or a memory.
Krikorian studied at the American University of Beirut (BA, AUB) and at University College London (MA, UCL).
