Aicon Art presents Gunjaan, Aicon Art’s debut solo exhibition of Lahore-based artist Ghulam Mohammad.

Recognizing the power that language commands, Ghulam Mohammad’s work breaks down existing, understandable text into its smallest single letters before recombining them into myriad patterns and permutations. In the words of distinguished artist and arts-educator Salima Hashmi,

Ghulam Mohammad’s ‘unpicking’ of the fabric of words is a strenuous, Herculean process…The sifting of these frail, graceful ingredients by Ghulam Mohammad is deft and subtle. He is sensitive to their precarious lives - lost creatures, searching for a place to anchor themselves. Paper as a medium reinforces the idea of history embedded in the manuscript - the mystery of language transferred into the mystery of the mark. The words or letters are compressed in ways reminiscent of ‘daastans’ or epic stories which are never-ending.
