Xirin is a performance artist whose work reclaims romantic tropes, emphasizing the ways idealistic notions of attachment cause pain. She often uses the form of the duet to explore how larger social power structures locate themselves within intimate relationships. Recently, Xirin has performed at the Jewish Museum, Knockdown Center, and Pioneer Works. Her writing is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Her work has been featured in publications such as Pitchfork, Vestoj, and PAPER magazine. Alongside Kembra Pfahler, she frequently organizes performance art events in New York, known as Incarnata Social Club. Xirin received her BA from Sarah Lawrence and is currently an MFA candidate at Columbia University.
