Maryam Jafri is an internationally renowned artist. This year she will participate at the prestigeous, european biennial of contemporary art, Manifesta, opening June 2nd in Genk, Belgium. The Museum of Contemporary Art is happy to present her first solo exhibition in Denmark with new works from 2007 to 2012.

Maryam Jafri works in video, performance, and photography. Informed by a research based, interdisciplinary process, her artworks are often marked by a visual language poised between film and theater and a series of narrative experiments oscillating between script and document, fragment and whole. They explore and challenge concepts such as truth and myth, history and fantasy.

In the exhibition, GEOGRAPHIES, Maryam Jafri investigates our cultural identity and the cultural divide across space and time.
