Zamzama Park

As part of our Springboard Series, ArtNow invites you to a talk with Bani Abidi at Fomma, Zamzama Park, DHA, Karachi.

Bani Abidi holds the distinction of being one of the two Pakistani artists ever to be invited to dOCUMENTA. Bani Abidi trained in painting and printmaking at National College of Arts, Lahore, but her interest moved to video while she was pursuing her MFA at the Art Institute of Chicago. The photographic element in her work ensued as a natural consequence of video-making. Bani's oeuvre is si
multaneously witty and sad, giving her works the poignancy that amazes and startles while it narrates

Bani Abidi was born in 1971 in Karachi, Pakistan, and lives in Berlin. She has participated in the Biennale de Lyon (2009), the Gwangju Biennale (2008), and the Fukuoka Triennale (2005). Solo exhibitions include the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead (2011), Green Cardamom, London (2010), and Project 88, Mumbai (2010).

Abidi is currently an artist in residence at the pretogious DAAD Berliner Kunstler program in Germany.
