Shahzia Sikander: "The Last Post" | "Exclusive"

Episode #171: Artist Shahzia Sikander, filmed in her Manhattan studio in 2012, discusses her animated video work "The Last Post" (2010). Sikander also describes how beginning to create animations was a natural evolution in her studio process because she had already been working with narrative and layering in her paintings and large-scale installations.

Shahzia Sikander specializes in Indian and Persian miniature painting, a traditional style that is both highly stylized and disciplined. Her work blends the Eastern focus on precision and methodology with a Western emphasis on creative, subjective expression. Sikander juxtaposes Hindu, Muslim, and Western iconography, entangling histories, meanings, and beliefs.
