12 Artworks by This Pakistani are too Dark and Disturbing

Ruby Chishti is an installation artist and graduate of the National College of Arts, Lahore. She uses unconventional mediums to produce new meanings around the female body. Her practice explores sculpture in relation to process, embodiment and site; and refuses the routine fetishisation of art and sculpture as marketable commodities.

Rather than claiming an eternal existence in a gallery or museum setting, this installation embraces temporality and is vulnerable to forces of nature. She enacts a refusal of the capitalist and institutional frameworks that support and exhibit the work of art and finds new possibilities for art and display. Ruby Chishti’s studio is located in an up and coming neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York.

While many found her work interesting and creative, there has been debate on this labeling it a disturbing and dark art.
