Omer Wasim


Omer Wasim (b. 1988, Karachi) is an intermedial artist whose practice queers space, subverting the frames of development, infrastructure, and everyday wars that shape human relationships to cities and nature. His work bears witness to the relentless erasure, violence, and destruction of our times by staying with and thinking through more-than-human bodies.

His solo and collaborative projects have been shown at Jameel Art Center (2022); Khoj Studios (2022); Colomboscope (2022); sonsbeek20→24: force times distance—on labour and its sonic ecologies (2021); Yokohama Triennale (2020); Dhaka Art Summit (2018 & 2020); Karachi Biennale (2017 & 2019); Kunstraum Niederoesterreich (2019); Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery, Haverford College (2019); International Public Art Festival, Karachi (2019); and Cairo Video Festival (2017) among others.
