The Last Known Pose

Essays and Reflections on the Work of Qasim Riza Shaheen

The Last Known Pose is a collection of written and visual responses to the works of British artist Qasim Riza Shaheen. Essays, reflections and conversations, by eminent scholars, curators, artists and collaborators, consider the multiple aspects and the experience of his works.

Through depictions of his own body and a vocabulary of simulation set within the photographic frame, Shaheen’s inter-disciplinary and socially-engaged practice explores notions of gender, atypically through the poetics of Sufism and the performance of cultural texts.
