"…my work is all about our relationship with animals and nature… There is humour in the work, but a serious side explores how we use our relationship with animals to define our humanness."

Taking place within the Gallery, this discussion explores themes related to Mohamedi's work, including calligraphy, geometry and urbanism. Born in Karachi, India (now Pakistan) in 1937, Mohamedi created a highly developed language from the 1950s to the 1980s. Early drawings often suggest plants and trees, before the artist focused on creating variations around the grid format; later works present free-floating geometric forms that evoke futuristic, mechanical or architectural devices.
