Do you know Madiha Aijaz? She was a filmmaker and photographer living in Karachi, Pakistan. Her work had always been as complicated and real as the environment in which she lived. She tried to use a visual effect rooted in the secular visual effect to express her views and solve the problems of language, identity, and colonial heritage.
Memorial for the lost pages shows the video and photos she took in Canada for the first time. It is a set of static and dynamic works created shortly before her death in 2019. Her pictures consider and express the issue of privacy and happiness. And she often studies those public spaces that seem unrelated to contemporary life, but these spaces continue to exist due to tenaciousness or accident. According to IFFR, her work uses the library of the former Theological Association in Karachi. Also, she completed the work with the short essay “These Silences Are All the Words”
