Imran Qureshi Idea Of Landscape
Kunsten Museum Of Modern Art Aalborg
The works all start from the idea of the landscape – the inner landscape as well as the external one, our individual landscapes as well as landscapes of society and politics. The exhibition refers to social conditions in Pakistan, while also making references to the violence and injustice that affect innocent people around the world every day. The red colour explosions serve as pictorial metaphors of the violence and fear that has characterised the world since 9/11 2001. But beneath the surface it is also possible to detect life and hope, steadily trickling out of the landscape.
