COLUMBUS, OH – Multidisciplinary artist Sa’dia Rehman will create a large-scale wall drawing, Map of my Home, II (2018) during a one-hour performance at Corrugate Studio Collective & Gallery. This is Rehman’s first show at Corrugate.
During the performance, the artist will engage with images from her growing archive: a range of sacred, mundane, and profane images collected over fourteen years, including family photographs, mass media images, English and Urdu text, art historical images and Muslim iconography. In working with imagery that is often marked foreign and often constructed as an ethnographic study of people of color and colonized people, Rehman’s work challenges the position of the universal. The work grapples with the dialectics of imagery, language, between having and lacking the power to define how we speak, how we are seen and heard.
