Hira Tahir Mirza, a student from Mariam Dawood School of Visual Arts and Design (SVAD), Beaconhouse National University, exhibited her artwork at the Venice Experimental Video and Performance Art Festival. This was a ten-day international art exhibition of video art, performance art, installation, painting and photography, which ran from 4-13 September, 2015, at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi, Venice.
Hira Mirza, who is a thesis year BFA student, was also interviewed by It's LIQUID website in which she shared details of the work she exhibited and her ideas on art.
We like to congratulate Hira on her first international exhibition and hope that many more will follow.
The artwork that I presented at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi through ITS LIQUID GROUP is one of the most special works because it is the first time I used my body in my artwork. There comes a time in life when we find ourselves completely content with life but there is always something missing, deep inside we all are battling with ourselves. The ropes are tied as braids so they look like a part of my body, my hair. Ropes are used to tie things together, to support and sustain and sometimes the things you rely on the most become your inescapable trap. That trap could be your conscience, your relationship with other people and sometimes even your relationship with yourself.
