Saud Baloch

I grew up in Nushki, Pakistan, during the 1980s, and studied Fine Arts at Balochistan University. In 2008, I moved to Lahore to study at the National College of Arts, majoring in Sculpture. I graduated with Distinction in 2013. My BFA thesis, Sustained, investigated the impact of physical and metaphorical burdens on the human form. Later sculptures and drawings have continued to enquire into this theme, exploring the effects of historic and geographical inheritances, and of contemporary political developments, through the manipulation of new materials and techniques. After graduating, I taught Sculpture at NCA, Lahore; participated in a Residency at Sanat Initiative, Karachi; a solo show at Sanat Gallery (2016); completed several largescale commissions; and exhibited extensively in Pakistan. In 2016, I moved to the UK, where I have participated in Arts Council funded projects and exhibited as a solo artist. I continue to exhibit in Pakistan, most recently at the Lahore Biennale, where I produced a sitespecific sound installation. My work has been reviewed and discussed in national and international publications.
