Nusra Latif Qureshi presents five works at Sharjah Biennial 15: Thinking Historically in the Present.
These key works from Qureshi’s oeuvre include a series of installations that draw on key colonial imagery, engage with the reverence of weaponry, and critique the museological convention of collecting and ownership.
Qureshi’s practice is characterised by meticulous layering, overlapping fragments, erasure, and juxtaposition of visual material. Through such interventions, Qureshi investigates little-known histories of colonial eras to reveal complex stereotypes, which are in turn rearranged to construct new narratives.
SB15 runs from 7 February to 11 June 2023.
