Satrang Gallery is proud to exhibit Confluence, a solo presentation of works by the internationally acclaimed artist Nida Bangash. Confluence is held in collaboration with and in celebration of the inaugural Islamabad Art Festival.
Nida’s miniature art practice explores issues of cultural identity, dislocation, displacement and territoriality by examining the domestic as a charged political space. Nida’s patterned, often geometric, visuals and architectural motifs have been informed by her traditional training in the discipline of miniature art from Pakistan’s reputed National College of Arts.
The works in Confluence belong to three separate series of inquiry, War Rugs with Love, I Am A Tree and This Bridge Called My Back, where over a period of seven years, the artist examined larger concerns of childhood, ideas of home, and aspects of weaving.
Born in Iran, and raised in Pakistan, Nida now lives and works in the US. She is exhibiting in Pakistan after a period of six years.
