Rima Najdi is a performance artist currently based in Berlin. She works across disciplines including performance, video, installation and design. Much of the motivation in her work stems from the curiosity to research the production of propositions that challenge and occupy in-between spaces: spaces that exist perhaps only between the self and the other, reality and fiction, physicality and emotion. A research for an act, a statement, a photo, an art work that questions issues such as stereotypes, identity, gender, failure of language, borders and its representations. Najdi has a Diploma in Dramatic Arts (2008) from High Arts Institute, Lebanese University, Beirut, and an MA in Performance Studies (2011) from Tisch School of the Arts, New York University, U.S.A. She was a recipient of the Watermill Center International Summer Residency.
