Jamie George’s practice centers upon production of objects, photographs and videos that have a sculptural concern, exploring the cultural identities and histories of everyday materials. His work often plays on the sliding scales of symbolism within history, reviewing known icons and gestures.
Jamie George’s residency focused on curatorial and cultural administration within Pakistan and internationally. During his residency George undertook a number of research trips, collaborated in open studios, and gave educational lectures. George’s Fellowship was part of a wider project running throughout 2012 at Vasl, focusing on curatorial and cultural administration within Pakistan and internationally.
Vasl is an artist-led organisation established in 1999, in Karachi, as a platform for dynamic Pakistani art and contemporary Pakistani artists and as a space to host artists’ workshops, residencies and exhibitions.
