A city next to the sea awakens to a strange phenomenon.
Asif Farrukhi’s story addresses a very tangible ecological concern in a subtle and unassuming manner, highlighting the very complex psyche and fabric of Karachi.
The Tentative Collective is a collective of people who share resources to create collaborative works of art in everyday urban spaces. The collaboration started in Karachi, Pakistan in December, 2011.
About ‘Projections’: Drawing on everyday practices, artists, curators and creative practitioners will enact their own ephemeral projections in the city. The projections will take the form of luminous moving imagery, urban transference, performance of desires, evocation of memories, and playful engagements with architectural forms, spatial configurations and experiential modes. And through these intersecting projections we ask how we can momentarily inhabit each other’s imagination-each other’s city?
