Lala Rukh

Lala Rukh is a feminist activist artist from Pakistan. Lala Rukh’s drawings and
photographic works are considered to be amongst the pioneering works of the South
Asian minimalist tradition. These drawings are inspired directly from an observation
of nature and in particular could be best described as meditations on the horizon line.
The use of the horizon line in the drawings is a way to bring to the fore the binding
relationship of the body to history and landscape. For Non Aligned Lala Rukh will
return to Sri Lanka and once again look at the nature of landscape as a means to
negotiate what is shifting and yet focus on what remains the same.
