Maniba Zariat was one of the eight artists exhibited as part of the Green Lens project at MAC, throughout August & September 2018.
This is Zariat’s accompanying text to the artwork:
‘They Came, They Saw, They Left’ We leave behind the damage we do. Uncovering the forgotten areas in Kashmir, Pakistan I reflected upon how much of what humans want is a fleeting desire in comparison to the lasting damage to land and residents.
‘Mother Nature vs Mankind’ The movement of humans towards a land often brings up two opposing forces, the desires of humans at the expense of the safeguarding of Earth.
‘Wasteland on Motherland’ When we cannot respect the environment how can we respect ourselves? Not only are pollutants and waste causing adverse changes to the environment, but they are also causing adverse changes to humans.
