Pain and Pleasure

 

Madeeha Iqbal

Lahore, Pakistan

My work explores the use of medical equipment as material that is transformed to create

other objects. Medical equipment intrigues me, amuses me but also seemingly dangerous.

I was to change the perception of the viewer to look at the ordinary object from a

different perspective. I am interested in the transformation of medical objects into the blurring

boundaries of pain and pleasure.While exploring these materials my art practice

generates dark humor,which is also some of the concerns that are highlighted in my work.

These works were exhibited in the M.A. Honours Degree Show, December 2016-January 2017, at the National College of the Arts, Lahore, Pakistan.
