Daydreams by Fahd Burki at Jameel Arts Centre  

Reading: < 1 min

A retrospective of Pakistani artist Fahd Burki’s work from the last 15 years is on display at Jameel Arts Centre from March 5 to October 9, 2022. This exhibition contains paintings, drawings and prints inspired by architecture, fantasy, nature, science and contemporary pop culture. 

The artist’s early figurative works were made using flat graphic colours, symbols and shapes. However, Burki’s work has developed to feature more grids, lines, repetitive and symmetrical patterns, and blank spaces.  

Through a new series of commissioned reliefs, Burki explores the space between painting and sculpture in his more recent works. He reduces the artwork to its most essential elements, concentrating on materiality emphasising weight and form.

Fahd Burki lives and works in Lahore, Pakistan. His artworks have been exhibited widely in solo and group displays internationally, including 9th Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art, Sweden, 2017; National Gallery of Art, Warsaw, 2016; Gwangju Biennale 11, 2016; Office for Contemporary Art Norway: OCA, Oslo, 2016; Dhaka Art Summit, 2016; British Council Headquarters, London 2015 and Carré D’Art, Nîmes, 2014.

A special publication with newly commissioned texts by Murtaza Vali, Saira Ansari and Dawn Ross will also be presented at “Daydreams”.
