Nidal Sher lives in Pakistan, in the region of Balochistan, where the internet connection is active a couple of hours a day. For us, it would be impossible to work, something inconceivable, but for Nidal those two hours are enough to give vent to all his imagination and to create digital collages that combine the love for his country, fantastic scenarios, and current subjects.
So we see the Mona Lisa holding a machine gun, women covered in designer burqas and images of denunciation of consumerism and war.
The fact that these works come from the imagination of a young man from an economically disadvantaged and technologically backward region invests them with even greater value. Think if Nidal had a 24-hour connection what he could create.
