Form is pleased to announce Saks Afridi as Form’s first recipient of the 2017-2018 Form Research & Development (R&D) Fellowship. Saks Afridi is a multi-disciplinary artist. Born in Pakistan and raised in several countries, he currently lives and works in New York City.
The 2017-2018 Form R&D Fellowship is currently awarded by nomination and special invitation only. This Fellowship was developed thru the manifestation of ongoing research-based collaborations for the creation of artists’ work.
Saks Afridi is a multi-disciplinary artist. Born in Pakistan and raised in several countries, he now lives and works in New York City.
Saks’ art practice is two-fold: Collaborative and Personal. His personal work investigates the predicaments and perplexities of the life of an ‘Insider Outsider’. This is the practice of achieving a sense of belonging while being out of place, finding happiness in a state of temporary permanence, and re-contextualizing existing historical and cultural narratives with the contemporary. His collaborative work tackles themes around human rights, Islamophobia, drone warfare and social justice in general. He is currently working on a multi-artist collaboration for his project ‘SpaceMosque’ in a new genre he terms as ‘Sci-fi Sufism’. The project includes a team of architects, writers, digital artists and fabricators. http://www.saksafridi.com
