Globally celebrated artist Imran Qureshi proudly presents ‘Deen o Duniya’ – The Sacred and the Earthly; a site-specific installation at the ongoing Karachi Biennale 2022. In ‘Deen O Dunya’, Imran Qureshi captures video projection and sound-based work to interpret and showcase boundaries of religious rituals, culture and modern technology merged in a carnivalesque form. “‘Deen o Duniya’ – The Sacred and the Earthly is an installation I would be humbled for everyone to experience. It is one where residents of a local neighbourhood go through profound physical and emotional experiences when their homes, streets, and entire neighborhoods undergo an intense transformation.” said Imran Qureshi. Indeed, Imran Qureshi expands the language of miniature painting in the form of such site-specific installations, three-dimensional works, videos, and paintings.
