AFRAH SHAFIQ is a multi / new media artist based out of Goa, India. Using the process of research as a playground, she brings together the verified world of facts, history and archival findings; linking them to a speculative world of feelings, folklore and fantasy. She often makes interactive-hybrid forms using animation, code, sound and the handmade, seeking ways to retain the tactile within the digital and the poetry within technology.
Her work has been shown at the Lahore Biennale, the Kochi Muziris Biennale, Computer Space Bulgaria, Kostka Prague, Marfa Open & Fusebox Festival TX among others. She has been a research fellow at the Institute of Advance Studies in France and attended residencies at Fluent Collaborative in Austin and the Liverpool Biennial of Contemporary Art. She is currently a research fellow with the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, Moscow.
