VASL-ROHTAS International Residency, Islamabad, 2011
Nature and Artifice
The Vasl Artists’ Collective is initiating its first International Residency in Islamabad in collaboration with Rohtas, at the Rohtas Rawan Farm.
A number of artisan workshops, such as carpenters, blacksmiths, stonecutters and tile makers are located on both Simly and Lehtrar Roads, within a four kilometer radius of the Rohtas Rawan site.
The expanding city and the natural environment come in contact with each other in the areas surrounding Islamabad and create different realities of nature, a distinct visual terrain that is neither ‘nature’ nor ‘suburbia’. This residency invites artists to explore notions of nature and artifice that emerge through transformations of space.
Residency Dates: March 14 - April 19, 2011
The Participating Artists:
- Syed Hassan Mujtaba, Pakistan
- Naqsh Raj, Pakistan
- Basak Akcakaya, Turkey
- Muzzumil Ruheel, Pakistan
- Khanyisile Mbongwa, South Africa
- Katayoun Karami, Iran

We cordially invite you to the Open House on 16th April 2011 from 2:00pm to 6:00pm at Rohtas Rawan, Tumair Village Lehtrar Road Simli Dam Road Link, Islamabad - Pakistan
