‘The Censored City’ by Safwan Subzwari to be held at ArtChowk the gallery from September 8 to September 22 from 5pm to 8pm.
Safwan Subzwari has said that “each canvas from this series was laid out in a famous area of Karachi. A bright white square laid out in the middle of some of Karachi’s busiest areas. At first, people walked around it. But soon after one person had disregarded this hundreds of other foot prints joined in And soon the city of Karachi had made this visitor one of its own. By the time the canvases were brought back to the studio they were covered with stains of all kinds and they smelled of Karachi. Each stain carried a story worth sharing. In the following months, I illustrated the stories of Karachi making sure to tell them as honestly as the cloth had witnessed them.”
