FOUNDWORK GUEST CURATOR 

"THROUGH INSTALLATIONS AND ASSEMBLAGES OF TEXTILES, AS WELL AS DIGITAL VIDEO PIECES, MARYAM HASNAIN CONDUCTS MATERIAL INVESTIGATIONS OF TRANSNATIONAL AND CROSS-CULTURAL EXCHANGE AND THE PARADOXES OF PROVENANCE AND ORIGIN SOURCES. IN CONSIDERING HOW PARTICULAR CRAFT FORMS, SUCH AS TEXTILES, CAN BE RECONCEIVED AND UNDERSTOOD IN A MEDIA-SATURATED LANDSCAPE, HASNAIN REROUTES THE CIRCUITS OF DISPOSABILITY AND INVISIBILITY THAT CRAFT TRADITIONS ARE SO OFTEN RELEGATED TO. DRAWING ON THE HISTORIES OF THE TEXTILE TRADE AND HER OWN EXPERIENCES WORKING AND LIVING ACROSS SOUTH AND SOUTHEAST ASIA AND LONDON, HASNAIN CONSIDERS THE POLITICS AND PRESENTATION OF ARTISTIC LABOR, OFTEN APPLYING REFLEXIVE SELF-CRITIQUE TO HER OWN POSITION AS AN ARTIST." - TAUSIF NOOR
