The Ashmolean presents Suspended in Time, a solo show by Ali Kazim, one of the most exciting artists working in Pakistan today, inspired by his residency at the Museum.
During a residency in 2019, Kazim spent days browsing through the Museum’s South Asian collection. Kazim’s engagement with the material and visual traditions – for example, how a small clay sculpture or a fingerprint can connect us, directly and viscerally, to the people who originally made and used them – encourages us in turn to reflect on how the past informs and influences the present. Curated by Dr Mallica Kumbera Landrus, Keeper of the Department of Eastern Art and Senior Curator of Indian, Himalayan and Southeast Asian Art, in collaboration with the artist, the exhibition will feature Ashmolean objects alongside paintings, sculptures and installations by Kazim.
