Khadim AliThe haunted lotus
6 Mar – 1 Jun 2014
Location: Contemporary project space
The AGNSW Contemporary Project considers familial ties, the Hazara people and culture, and the emergence of a lawless society in Afghanistan.
In addition to these social issues, Khadim Ali revisits recurrent themes in his work, such as the construction of morality (good and evil) and ethnic, racial and religious fanaticism.
The exhibition is comprised of new works including handmade carpets (woven in Kabul), photographs, drawings, video and miniature paintings.
