REVIEW

Saba Hasan
‘Undeciphered Fates’
Book installations, voice and video

Indira Lakshmi Prasad

Having been deeply involved with representations of conflict and peace throughout her career, Hasan takes on the role of provocateur in her featured video installation.The piece, ‘Burnt Book 6’ features hand held camerawork as Hasan herself sets light to a book, placed on a Rehal (book rest) with characteristicallyArabic calligraphy.

Irreverent yet inestimable, ephemeral yet crystallised, Hasan presents us with a careful agglomeration of myriad art mediums. This eclectic collection of works housed in the vibrant art hub Lado Sarai,is on at Art and Aesthetics gallery.The exhibition includes many of the ‘book work’ pieces which have become somewhat of a defining signature of her body of works, along with potent video and spoken word pieces. Having been deeply involved with representations of conflict and peace throughout her career, Hasan takes on the role of provocateur in her featured video installation.
