یہ خوبصورت جگہ / यह ख़ूबसूरत जगह / this beautiful place

What shapes distance? In what forms are things kept apart? With the earth and sky being increasingly fragmented, claimed, capitalised and reproduced, we find ourselves existing between many versions of the same world. We meet worlds of disillusionment—a dawn abruptly separated from the night, and one of hope—of the dawn that still awaits.

From here, we observe unenclosed enclosures and absent presences embodied within one space. Isolating us are the grand edifices of the physical and the abyss of the virtual, yet often penetrated. Their seemingly immovable mass challenged by everyday musings. With one Multan parted as a geographical footing, others metamorphise through a series of intergenerational longings. In these transient flights, pieced together are places we often call home.
