Born in Rawalpindi, Pakistan

Based in Helsinki, Finland.

I am an interdisciplinary artist, designer, and a writer. I graduated with a Masters in Critical, Curatorial, and Conceptual Practices at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation and earned my B.A. in Architecture and Visual Studies from the University of Toronto.

 

I have produced a collection of visual, performance, installation and photography projects. My writing, considering how the built environment manifests structural inequality, has been published in various magazines. My independent art practice engages with themes of occupation, displacement, and geopolitical tensions.
