A Pakistani-based visual artist (b. 1998), Fatima Ateeq’s work revolves around the dilemma of having to choose between accepting and denying the passing of a loved one. Nobody informs you about how comparable the feelings of fear and melancholy are. Continuing on with life feels like more of a betrayal to me. The circumstances surrounding their demise become somewhat ambiguous as you progress from one level to the next in life. They keep reappearing in strange circumstances, despite the fact that they are no longer present. And at that point, everything becomes absurd and an enigmatic energy begins to permeate us.
