Get to know the artists behind Reth aur Reghistan!
Mannat grew out of the curiosity of two sisters wanting to learn about the folklore from Karachi and Sindh province in Pakistan. We launched a research project and explored these stories through poetry and sculpture. Through foraged and reclaimed materials, such as pieces from their dadi’s saari, beads from a broken tasbeeh, dried flowers, and shells, we bring to life characters and scenes from these ancestral tales. We embrace memory as our creative medium and use pieces from the past to tell stories of the present.
We gratefully acknowledge support from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council and of course, the team at Jumblies.
