Our Twisted Future by Asad Kamran at AFK

Asad Kamran an architect and a painter, draws inspiration from the juxtapositions that make up modern day life. His processes are instinctive, impulsive, and multi-disciplinary. Observing society, his work often becomes a form of criticism of what surrounds him. Having had shows in in Karachi, Pakistan, Istanbul, Turkey and Edinburgh, UK, his works have been described as ‘intuitive, gestural, and whimsical’.

His latest show “Our Twisted Future” is a jab on the tired-ness of noisy, modern-day culture. He attempts to dissect what it means to exist within a society full of contradictions. This multi disciplinary exhibition is his attempt to utilise art as a tool for social commentary, in his own right. The exhibit will also host Live Soundscapes by Dj duo Saad Memon and Haider Rizvi, known as SYNR.

Hailing from Washington, USA, and having played in Baku, Tbilisi and across North America they attempt to experiment and test the limits of audio and visual art. The creation of Soundscapes is an experiment to interpret an art-form that hinges on the symbiosis between the meaning behind a paint stroke and a sound wave.
