NAIZA KHAN

Born in Bahawalpur, Pakistan.
Lives and works in London and Karachi.

Naiza Khan’s visual practice is built on a process of critical research, documentation and mapping-based exploration. Through a range of media, including drawing, archival material and video, she brings together ideas of embodiment and ecology.  Her work looks at geography as a heterogeneous assemblage of power, colonial history and collective memory. Working with the materiality of space, Khan’s multi-disciplinary practice raises questions about optics and erasure and frictions between old and new infrastructures.

Naiza Khan currently lives between London and Karachi. She is Senior Advisor at the Department of Visual Studies, University of Karachi, and a member of the Board of Governors, Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture, Karachi.
