Trees: Gardens of Paradise: Hamra Abbas at the Karachi Biennale (KB19)

26 October - 12 November 2019 Biennials

The thematic for KB19 is inspired by ecological consequences of dense urbanization – “Flight Interrupted: Eco-leaks from the Invasion Desk”. The title invokes loss of species of low flying birds wiped out by vertical structures in Karachi that broke their free flight and marginalized life-cycles.


KB19 is curated by artist Muhammad Zeeshan and takes place across seven venues, including Qasim park, where Hamra Abbas’s paneled cube of marble inlay, titled Trees: Gardens of Paradise (2019), is installed.
