Of Dimensions Three & Four: An Exhibition of Works by Uzair Akram

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

Join us at Faraar Gallery for an exhibition by Uzair Akram
Opening Date: Wednesday, 4 August 2010 | 6:00 pm

“This is the story of dimensions – of how a dot becomes a line which becomes a plane only to become a cube … what happens to the cube is something you have to figure out,” said the old wizard as he disappeared into the fogs of my mind.

“Of dimensions three and four” takes a five year long walk outside my mind and comes back to tell the story, in ink, of the cross-chatter between the two hemispheres of my brain, of tapping into a world beyond our ordinary 3D realm. Of exploring what happens to the cube that surrounds our senses. Of schizophrenic prophecies, and cross dimensional memories.

“Pictures Within”

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

Join us at Faraar for an exhibition of drawings by Sami Chohan
Opening Date: Monday, 19 July 2010 | 6:00 pm

#alttext#Sami Chohan identifies his art as a process of extraction – an extraction of metaphorical yet bewildering, and sometimes impenetrable imagery from the unconscious mind. Unreal in their manifestation, he considers these extracted images to possess the ultimate truth. His work relies on both forms of surrealism – Absolute and Veristic. Sami is self-taught and self-motivated, and he draws to provoke thought.

About the Artist

Sami Chohan was born in Karachi, in 1983. Looking back at the 27 years of his life, he feels extremely privileged to have lived in four different cities, four different countries and consequently, four different cultures. He was raised in Riyadh, and it was here that he developed an interest in drawing; an activity which he became acquainted with early in life. Apart from being inspired by summer trips to Karachi where he saw his maternal grandfather draw, paint, carve and smoke, the introverted Saudi way of life became a platform for him to draw all sorts of things. As his drawing skills improved, his imagination began to cut loose. Sami graduated from Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture in 2007 and is currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Architecture in Germany.
