Aster Reem David
Aster Reem David (b. 1988, Pakistan) is a UK-based artist, working with photography and moving image. Often working on long-term projects, Aster’s practice concerns the interrelationships between memory, space and landscape with a distinct focus on key themes of ecology, geology and geography. In Anthropocene epoch, with the camera as her tool, Aster seeks to deconstruct the complexities surrounding climate change while she questions her role in the burgeoning crisis. Frequently encompassing found images, postcards, and unwanted materials (paper), Aster’s work is underpinned by experimentation, layering, accidents, collage, repetition and image cross-over within several bodies of work.
