Life of Strays at T2F


‘Life of Strays’, a two-person show by Rahat Niazi and Ali Khurshid, opens at Faraar Gallery, T2F, on Thursday, 5th March 2020, from 5 pm – 8 pm.

Rahat Niazi is a sculptor and a print maker based in Karachi. Art has always held a very crucial role in her life, helping her through her teens to cope with varying emotions. Rahat’s artistic practice revolves around the idea of existence and how very easily one tends to forget their purpose in life. This theme is not always voluntary, sometimes external factors lead up to one losing their identity and feeling worthless for the rest of their life. She feels this is something everyone needs to get out of and to start this process one first needs to start being more acceptive towards all species around us specially strays.

This can very easily be concise into Anatole France’s quote,
“Until one has loved an animal a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”

Ali Khurshid is an aspiring athlete, animal rescuer, photographer and entrepreneur based out of Karachi. His photography does not rest in one genre and he uses light to guide his forms coming to life.
