INTERSECTIONS | ANILA QUAYYUM AGHA

Winner of both the public and juried vote of Artprize 2014, Pakistani artist Anila Quayyum Agha exercises the architecture of the Grand Rapids Art Museum in Michigan by infilling it with a dynamic interplay of shadow and light. Intersections comprises a 6.5 foot laser-cut wooden cube pierced with carefully crafted patterns and illuminated from the inside, which casts expansive, lace-like geometries onto the surrounding walls, ceiling and floor.

Carved Wood Cube Projects Stunningly Ornately-Shaped Shadows on Gallery Walls

Mixed media artist Anila Quayyum Agha project titled “Intersections” showcases a laser-cut wooden 6.5′ cube, which contains a single light bulb. Its purpose is to casts shadows of stunning geometrical patterns often found in Islamic sacred spaces on the walls of a gallery. The artist says on her website:

“This installation project relies on the purity and inner symmetry of geometric design, the interpretation of the cast shadows and the viewer’s presence within a public space.”

For a stunning installation entitled Intersections, Indianapolis-based mixed media artist Anila Quayyum Agha created a large wooden cube that bathes gallery spaces in breathtakingly intricate shadows. It’s like a much larger, more precise version of the coconut shadow lamps we featured last week.

Suspended from the gallery ceiling, the cube measures 6.5 feet square, each side of which was laser-cut with intricate patterns that are cast on the walls, floor and ceiling by a single light bulb in the center of the cube. The effect is truly dazzling.

Anila was born in Lahore, Pakistan and this mesmerizing project “combines the patterning of Islamic sacred spaces with architectural aesthetics.”

“The Intersections project takes the seminal experience of exclusion as a woman from a space of community and creativity such as a Mosque and translates the complex expressions of both wonder and exclusion that have been my experience while growing up in Pakistan. The wooden frieze emulates a pattern from the Alhambra, which was poised at the intersection of history, culture and art and was a place where Islamic and Western discourses, met and co-existed in harmony and served as a testament to the symbiosis of difference. For me the familiarity of the space visited at the Alhambra Palace and the memories of another time and place from my past, coalesced in creating this project.

Visit Anila Quayyum Agha’s website to learn more about this extraordinary project.

Intersections, Anila Quayyum Agha

“The Intersections project takes the seminal experience of exclusion as a woman from a space of community and creativity such as a Mosque and translates the complex expressions of both wonder and exclusion that have been my experience while growing up in Pakistan. The wooden frieze emulates a pattern from the Alhambra, which was poised at the intersection of history, culture and art and was a place where Islamic and Western discourses, met and co-existed in harmony and served as a testament to the symbiosis of difference. I have given substance to this mutualism with the installation project exploring the binaries of public and private, light and shadow, and static and dynamic. This installation project relies on the purity and inner symmetry of geometric design, the interpretation of the cast shadows and the viewer’s presence within a public space.”
