One should either be a piece of art or wear a piece of art

“ONE SHOULD EITHER BE A PIECE OF ART OR WEAR A PIECE OF ART “- THIS FAMOUS QUOTE BY OSCAR WILDE DEFINES THE PREVIEW OF BLACKBIRD 1 , ON SATURDAY MAY 12TH 2012 , FROM 6 PM – 8 PM.
Canvas Gallery
F 50/A, Block 4, Clifton,
Karachi, Pakistan

THE SHOW IS A COLLABORATION BETWEEN VISUAL ARTIST ANJUM ALIX NOON AND FASHION DESIGNER , SADAF MALATERRE.


Surviving in a world divided into hemispheres of all shorts – physical, geographical, cultural, social and imaginary, is a challenging task. Yet at the same time it is an occasion for personal satisfaction too, because we keep on creating a world of our own. This may be starkly separate from others’ visions or versions of the world.

Anjum Alix Noon and Sadaf Malateree have also constructed a different world by blending their own creative practises. Work created after the collaboration between a visual artist and a fashion designer, affirms that the boundaries of artistic disciplines arc just illusory borders, which a creative person can turn and transform for his/her personal and pictorial purpose/pleasure.

The work of these two individuals suggests how art and fashion can join hands to depict a reality, that is beyond sensory limitations. Their pieces which relate to major concerns of our times, offer a new dimension towards understanding, adapting and accepting issues of aesthetics, utility and existence in a society, perpetually under the threat of extinction. Images, colours and fabrics from familiar surroundings arc presented through innovative designs, drapes, cuts, lines, marks and brush strokes; thus bringing out a product that includes and invites one’s body, mind, eyes and soul.

What else could you want, wish for, desire or get!
