Rabbya Naseer and Hurmat Ul Ain | Dropping Tears Together

Exhibition Dates
8 – 10 September 2017




Dropping Tears Together is a live, durational performance in which the artists bring a domestic refrain to the gallery setting. Audiences are invited to hold the space with the artists as they chop onions and tell anecdotes about their lives in Pakistan.

Rabbya Naseer and Hurmat Ul Ain are graduates of the National College of Arts in Lahore. Their interdisciplinary collaboration incorporating painting, sculpture, photography, video and performance began in 2008, and revolves around sounding out shared experiences in the social and cultural sphere of Pakistan. At the heart of their collaboration is the idea of creating a common voice that reflects certain role expectations.
