Mahbub Jokhio (Pakistan)
November 2021 - February 2022
Mahbub Jokhio is from Sindh, Pakistan. Besides working on his own artistic practises, he teaches at Beaconhouse National University Lahore. Jokhio’s visual investigations often incorporate irony, a dark sense of humor and self-referential critiques that locate and decode the image’s capacity to mediate reality. Jokhio often makes slight alterations and manipulations in usual conventions to alter our view and perception towards the world. In general the artistic practise of Jokhio ranges widely in both content and stylistically.
