VM Art Gallery is pleased to present We graze in the sun. We graze in squalor. We exist quietly., a solo show featuring works by Shazia Zuberi. The exhibition will open on Friday 10th December 2021 at 5 pm and continue till 28th December 2021, Monday to Saturday, 11am to 7pm.
This oeuvre tends to celebrate clay’s tactile and transformational nature through firings. Zuberi has used markhor, Pakistan’s national animal as a symbol to represent the citizens of Pakistan. She believes that our citizenry and the national animal are deeply entwined and are not too different. They hang in a fine balance.
Clay tells a story of the natural past, Zuberi’s series often highlights nature’s footprint of the present. Her work encapsulates the representation of human existence in scape of the past. Whereas her figurative abstract work has been used as a documentation of human presence. The work stresses upon the need to maintain a fine balance between nature and communal human needs. This latest series sees this predicament depicted through the use of symbolism.
