Hajra Waheed @ Baltic, Gateshead
29 January 2016 - 30 May 2016
The Cyphers is Hajra Waheed’s first solo exhibition in a UK institution and expands upon Still Against the Sky, a recent presentation at KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin. The exhibition continues Waheed’s ongoing research into current aerial occupations, highlighting the ever-increasing militarisation of the sky where the circulation of military drones and surveillance technology extends over everyday life, often with lethal consequences. Against this backdrop of borderless spatial power games, Waheed’s drawings, collages, videos and photo-based works emerge in the form of archives, fragments and field notes. The collected materials are used to construct new stories about marginalised histories.
