Adeela Suleman: Allegory of War

About

Internationally renowned Karachi-based artist Adeela Suleman is known for the social and political commentary underlying her sculptures, which are created out of everyday objects. This will be the first solo exhibition of the artist's work in a public gallery in the UK. The recurring motifs in Suleman's work - organic subjects such as birds and flowers - form detailed, repetitive patterns, which are replete with symbolic meaning. Abstracted notions of loss and disappearance quietly resonate through her sculptures. In lieu of tombs, memorials and funerals, the works confront our earthly fears, but remain suggestive of transcendental relief. fragmented documentaries referencing recent violent and catastrophic occurrences within the artist's socio-political landscape.
