From June 26th to October 2nd, 2022, the Institut Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt will be presenting a solo exhibition of the artist Nadira Husain (*1980, lives and works in Berlin, Paris and Hyderabad). In her works, she interweaves figures, symbols and ornaments from different cultures into complex visual worlds that reflect the artist’s own multicultural experience.
In favor of a harmonious and yet dynamic coexistence of all elements, Husain’s work equally incorporates painting, drawing and printing processes, as well as traditional craft techniques and various materials, including textiles and ceramics. For the presentation in the Museum Künstlerkolonie (Artists’ Colony Museum), the artist has created a new site-specific installation that questions phenomena of cultural and economic globalization as well as their conventions of representation.
