About the Artist
Fazal Rizvi is an interdisciplinary artist currently based in Karachi. His inquiry rests somewhere between the personal, the social and the political. Having spent a few years thinking about the materiality and immateriality of the sea and its borders, Rizvi also keeps returning to the personal and familial as a place of trigger, which has taken him to a sherbet recipe that his late aunt used to make. Rizvi is also beginning his long term engagement and research in reference to the glacial and mountainous terrain in the north of Pakistan, where he hopes to settle later this year.
Rizvi graduated from the National College of Arts, Lahore in 2010. He has been an artist in residence at the Arcus Studios, Japan in 2011, and was the recipient of the Charles Wallace Pakistan Trust award for Gasworks Studios Residency, London in 2014. Pro Helvetia New Delhi studio residency in Zurich, 2020 and a resident artist at the Jan van Eyck Academie, Netherlands for the year 2020-21.
