public art – vasl
This was an individual project installed in the lahore canal/neher in 2007, made during the 13 satellites Vasl public art residency in lahore. Concrete benches surround the city’s footpaths and were homes to many homeless, a replica was created in wood and board and installed with the support of a huge horizontal tree bark that ran across an area in the neher. The intention was to create a capsule of utopia. A perfect place in Lahore’s July heat, within the centre of the city.
Documentation of the work was displayed at the Ann Marie Schimmel haus, Lahore.
