Adeela Suleman artist talk

Featured in the South Asia Design Gallery with her spectacular piece, After all it’s someone else who Dies, Adeela Suleman is an artist who responds to death and violence in contemporary Pakistan.

Working with craft makers from a variety of disciplines including metal workers and painters, Adeela Suleman’s work combines exquisite craftsmanship and beauty with the fragility of life and death.

In contemporary Pakistan death surrounds us, nameless, faceless and countless.

She is currently the Coordinator of Vasl Artists’ Collective in Karachi, in addition to being Associate Professor and Head of the Fine Art Department at Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture.

Reviews and features of work appear in Artforum and the New York Times, among other publications. The artist lives and works in Karachi, Pakistan.
