Anatomy of a Horny Heart

Written by Maheen Aziz

 

Affan Baghpati’s art pieces are always intriguing enough to want me gaze them for a while to comprehend the dark humour that lies within each joint and assemblage. At once they might look bizarre, non-sensible and complex; however, these assembled materials are actually juxtaposing history and contemporary forms and tastes to present something Avant Grade.

 

A Karachi-based artist, Baghpati graduated with a BFA from Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture, Karachi (2015) and an MA in Art and Design at SVAD, Beaconhouse National University, Lahore (2017). Baghpati collects discarded domestic objects from different cities of Pakistan and re-contextualises them for reconsideration.
