Footnotes

  • "My work as an artist is rooted and emerges out of my own personalized experience of the contemporary socio-cultural and political realities of Pakistan . It is both an attempt to understand as well as to comment on (not necessarily critique) these realities.

    "Form can be ambiguous, contain innumerable meanings or be nothing more than self-referential. It is found objects that fascinate and motivates me. How one can change their meaning and form by simply putting them in a different context. The daily object, through its multiplication and assembly, becomes the delegate of a new, stimulating inner vision. How careful placement of these mundane object can bring them into the realm of art.

    "It’s always interesting for me to explore the possibility the material carries in its nature. For me, it’s like drawing with the material. Sometimes, I have a form in my mind and sometimes the form develops with the process and interaction that I go through with the material but in each case the decision to where it will stop is completely personal. This form which emerges out of the personal interaction with the material suggests multiple interpretations.

    "The inspiration is all around me every mundane activity and daily routine interests me. I take references from everywhere. It’s like borrowing from each and everything that I experience- from something very ritualistic to something which is absolutely wild. What ever happens on the road and all around me is the source of inspiration for me."
