Mariam Suhail

Mariam Suhail’s work stems from the incidental, undocumented minutia of conversations, media, culture, and the everyday. She employs language from these sources to dissect and re-present what may exist in the spaces between exchanges, ideas, historical events and daily occurrences, resulting in works of sculpture, video, digital images, text and drawing. Recent presentations of her work include a solo project at Discoveries, Art Basel Hong Kong (2013), a triple feature at Tilton Gallery, New York (2013) and the Skoda Prize 2012 Exhibition at the NGMA, New Delhi (2013) and the Skoda Prize 2012 Concerns, (2011) and fig. 1. (2009), at GALLERYSKE, Bangalore. Mariam has taught the School of Visual Art and Design, Beaconhouse National University, Lahore and the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture, Karachi, which is also where she completed her BFA in 2001. Originally from Islamabad, Mariam now lives and works in Bangalore.
