Shimmering Mirage: Anila Quayyum Agha

Exhibition Website

Oct 13 2017 - Mar 10 2018

A single white light bulb transforms the gallery from an undecorated room into an enveloping world of pattern and light. The pattern cut into simple black steel hanging from the ceiling is derived from the ornamental vaults found in Islamic architecture, especially mosques. The light filtering through intricately incised screens embellishes surfaces and extends structural lines of the interior.
