Mewish Iqbal

Art Forms: Installation, Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture, Textiles, Visual Art

Residency Year: 2014

Mehwish Iqbal works across painting, printmaking, textiles, ceramics, sculpture and installation art. Her work provocatively explores notions of womanhood, courage, liberation, and power. She experiments with themes involving migration, influx of refugee and migrant diaspora, monopoly of power-play, commodification of human agency, hybrid identities, unfolding fragile and complex state of individuals. Mehwish Iqbal has widely shown her work across Australia, Pakistan, USA, Turkey and Hong Kong. Her work is held in prestigious collections both locally and internationally. She has participated in Istanbul Contemporary, Hong Kong Art Central and Karachi Print Biennial and Sydney Contemporary Art Fair.

Iqbal was in residence at Bundanon in 2014.
