This monograph was published in conjunction with Khadim Ali's solo exhibition 'Haunted Lotus' at the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre in October 2013.
Khadim Ali produces miniature works of gouache and gold leaf on wasli paper. This particular series is a continuation of Ali's series of the same name, that depicts a giant bound Buddha prone over four panels, surrounded by ocre-coloured demons with white wings.
The works are, says Ali, 'based on the demonization of political foe and the demonized land of Pakistan and Afghanistan where minority groups, particularly Hazara, are subject to ongoing genocide.'
