Mariam Suhail


Mariam Suhail (b. 1979) was born in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, and lives and works in Bangalore, India. Her work stems from the incidental, undocumented minutia of everyday conversations, media and culture at large. Her practice deals with the complexities of language, dissecting and re-presenting what lies in the spaces between images, words, sounds and material. Her work spans various media that include sculpture, video, digital images, books, text and drawing.

Mariam’s work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions that include shows in Grey Noise, Dubai; GALLERYSKE, Delhi and Bangalore; 56th Venice Biennale (2015); Berlin Biennale 8 (2014); the Kochi-Muziris Biennale (2022-23); and the Dhaka Art Summit (2016). Mariam has also contributed to publications like Shifter 21 – Other Spaces (2013), Paessagio’s Coral Issue by BlauerHase (2016) and Silicon Plateau – Volume 2 (2019).
