We are pleased to announce an exhibition Crawlers and Stalkers by Yumna Sadiq on July 22 (Sat) and 23 (Sun), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Yumna Sadiq is a visual artist and an art specialist based in Pakistan.
In 2012, she graduated from National College of Arts, majoring in Miniature Painting. She further took a two year course in Contemporary Visual Arts program at the Funen Art Academy in Denmark.
She is interested in storytelling, be it in the form of writing, drawing and performing. Her recent project titled as ‘Doga and Doda’ was a project where she along with the children in Neelum Valley, Azad Kashmir created a new game titled as ‘Doda’ which was based on a mythical story.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
Have you ever had this feeling of something or someone watching over you?
When cycling along the rice fields or walking through the magical landscapes that remind one of Hayao Miyazaki’s animations, the feeling of something watching you is always there. But the question is… is it Ojizou sama watching over you or is it a tiny crab hiding under one of the rocks?
