As the title of the show depicts, this exhibition is conceived around the concept of thoughts and perceptions being translated into visuals. “When thoughts turn into images” is a body of work by five miniature artists, whose ideas and techniques vary. Yet they all have converted their own individual visions, arising in the mind, to images that informs us as to how they perceive the world around them.
Date: Thursday, 14th May – 28th May 2015
Time: 5:00pm to 8:00pm
At: Suite 102, 1st. Floor, Clifton Centre, Schon Circle, Clifton Block 5, Karachi
Art Exhibition: The Science of Taking a Walk
The Science of Taking a Walk
Navigating/ (Re) Navigating – Forming Trajectories
Curated by Hajra Haider Karrar.
Seher Naveed & Seema Nusrat
People can see nothing around them that is not their own image; everything speaks to them of themselves. Their very landscape is animated. Obstacles were everywhere. And they were all interrelated, maintaining a unified reign of poverty. -Karl Marx
The artists’ curiosity often takes him / her to navigating unknown paths or (re)navigating paths known. The trajectory formed is one that varies with the artists’ observations and interests. Physical aspects of the space or cultural mannerisms/ behaviourisms, what is it that clicks with the artist and becomes a point of departure and entry. How are the points/stations determined in this trajectory? Is the collective subconscious at play while these new associations are being established?
Foreign lands or personal domain can both be challenging in this regard, personal domain maybe even more so, since unlearning or disregarding certain knowledge and habits maybe required in order to starting afresh.
How these trajectories are then translated so that glimpses of the artists’ experience are made available to be experienced by the viewer? Is the viewer then able to see through the lens of the artist and relate/ recognize/ associate with his experience?
These are some of the questions which will be explored in this exhibition.
