Venue Green Art Gallery
A broken limb made of stone, placed in a foreign country.
A sound wave, moving through air as an incomplete line.
A hermetic language, unable to speak, and left as an argument from silence.
Absence is defined as a state in which something desired is not present or does not exist. Silence created by emptiness. An unknowable measure of distance between things. A negative space.
Pakistani artist Seher Shah presents her works in When Words Disappear Into Trees as a study into absence. Following her practice intersecting art and architecture as a way to think about space, landscape, objects and aesthetics, Shah exhibits works on paper with marks that retain the traces of time bind, fragments of places both real and imagined.
