Mercy Shall Follow Me: Adeela Suleman

September 23-October 30, 2021

Aicon Contemporary, 35 Great Jones Street, New York, NY, USA

Aicon Contemporary presents a solo show of works by Adeela Suleman, Mercy Shall Follow Me. Adeela Suleman continues her fascination with violence, especially lethal violence, in this show. A lifetime based in Karachi, Pakistan, evokes days spent agonizing a safe route to routine destinations, the ramifications of a child or partner who is late and unreachable, and other circumstances which would not typically warrant unease in another setting. The artist transposes these turbulent moments of her life and those of others into works of art. The act of creating applique work is a process of recording history, layer upon layer, embedding experiences, atrocities, violence, love, pleasure, and death to unfold a story.
