Pakistan textile designers showcase artworks at KSA
Nov '12
‘Interlaced Structures’, an exhibition of four textile designers showcasing textile embedment in pieces of arts, is going on at the Karachi School of Art (KSA) Gallery.
Organized by the KSA, the exhibition showcases collections of Asma Faraz, Hassan-uz-Zafar, Kanchan Dawani and Bilal Mehmood Khan.
Ms. Faraz, a textile designing graduate from National College of Arts, Lahore, is showcasing her work entitled ‘Black’, which is a black coloured round cylindrical shaped art piece prepared from colourful threads, with mirrors at its base, covered with black Punjabi hair bands called parandas. The art work signifies that in spite of the negative image of Karachi, the city still has much potential which is untapped. The designer is currently associated with some of the reputed textile houses of Pakistan.
Mr. Zafar, a graduate in textile design technology from TIP, is showcasing a three-piece work, which has been interlinked with threads. Through his work, he means to portray that in spite of worsening law and order condition that restricts freedom, people in Karachi are still connected to each other.
In a statement, the designer said that he has used the old pin-and-thread technique in his work but has tried to add a modern touch to it through original ideas. He said it is quite difficult to reproduce a drawing in thread. A really fascinating thread drawing is prepared using pins and threads, while captivating the charm of ordinary scenes and bringing them to life with ordinary materials, threads and pins. 
Kanchan Dawani, a textile designing pass-out from Indus Valley School of Arts and Architecture (IVSAA) is showcasing his work ‘City of lights or city of shadows?’, which reflects Karachi’s electricity poles portraying Karachi as a city of light and shadows. He has prepared a high voltage electricity pole using transparent glass, acrylic wires and foil prints.
A textile designing graduate from Institute of Fashion Design (AIFD), Iqra University, Mr. Bilal Khan is showcasing his work inspired by Modern Architecture, which mainly uses wood or steel as key inputs.
The exhibition would run till November 29.
