In a video interview, Ahmad takes us into her studio to learn about her project “Marking Year.”
Ahmad’s work reimagines the symbolism of flags and its relationship to place and home for immigrant, displaced, and exiled communities.
Ahmad’s work will also be featured in an exhibition at Gallery B in Bethesda, MD from September 9 through October 3.
Sobia Ahmad’s interdisciplinary practice investigates how our deeply intimate struggles of belonging can inform larger conversations about national identity, notions of home, cultural memory, and gender. By weaving personal and communal narratives with current and historical socio-political contexts, she highlights the inseparability of the self and larger power structures.
