TEDxPrishtina - Nurhan Qehaja - Can you tell me what I'm doing?

Nurhan Qehaja is a young contemporary artist and a vegetarian food ambassador. The latter role is a natural continuation of her attempts to use art and performance in exploring issues of one's own identity, its relation to the body and to earth. Food, as well as art, enables Nurhan to grapple with questions on how we heal ourselves, what our relationship with food is, and how it leads to our self-expression. For Nurhan, food is a source of inspiration and an instrument of expression at the same time, as another type of medium among those she uses: photography, video, poetry, and her own body.Nurhan started her artistic career as a visual arts student at Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand. She only began to seriously experiment with vegetarian food five years ago. Faced with the challenges of vegetarians living in a meat-loving country like Kosovo, Nurhan decided to open the first vegetarian food shop in Prishtina. Her next step is to open a full-fledged restaurant.
