Creative Art Work ‘Situation 101’ by Director General Pakistan National Council of the Arts (PNCA) is attracting a large number of visitors here at premises of PNCA.
Situation 101 after successful projection at KB 17 Karachi, now displayed in Islamabad at premises of PNCA. ‘Situation 101’, a contemporary creative installation by Jamal Shah, remained centre of attraction with 101 sculptures in a very oddly humble situation and with a 25 feet high cage. The installation is a bold reflection of the entire nation being fooled by the influentials. Syed Jamal Shah is an artist, writer, filmmaker, educationist and social worker.
Jamal Shah has created a 25-foot metallic cage with wings surrounded by a number of life-size human figures cast in various materials.
The installation also includes: large LED screens for video projection of performances; a poetry recital by renowned media personalities/actors; dance by Amna Mawaz and the NPAG group of PNCA; music by Sain Khawar and Ustad Hamid Shahid and Faqirs from Sindh; as well as live painting and graffiti during the dance performances.
“Situation101 is a major art project specially executed for Karachi Biennale 2017 and now brought to Islamabad with the thematic area witness in mind. The work is a playful comment on the dichotomy of freedom, un-freedom Inviting interactivity, questions and interpretations,” Shah says about the installation
