Rubber Factory

Rubber Factory presents multidisciplinary artist Umber Majeed’s In the Name of the Hypersurface of the Present, which speculates on a feminist re-historicization of Pakistan as the first “Muslim nuclear state”. The exhibition outlines the artist’s inquiry into nuclear nationalism and its implications on the citizen-body. Through a multitude of sources ranging from familial archival material and South Asian digital kitsch, there is an unpacking of a dispersed, porous homeland. Remnants of the female body and flora within the sculpture and works on paper outline women as the vessels used to perpetuate state ideological notions of love, science, and nature. The intention is to make the subjectivities visible outside of the patriarchal imaginary of the Islamic Republic.
