Bomb Magazine Interview with Adeela Suleman

Written by Rabia Ashfaque 


I first saw Adeela Suleman’s work during a visit to her studio as a fine arts undergraduate student at the Indus Valley School, Karachi—a department she now runs. At the time, she was designing ornate armor for women. At once playful and political, this sculptural armor was created almost entirely out of stainless steel kitchen utensils and was meant to question the role and fate of women who, in many households in Pakistan, are taught to consider the domestic as the only life worth valuing.
