Areez Katki is a multidisciplinary artist and writer whose practice dwells around conceptual and material-based intersections which survey the phenomenology of postcolonial identities. Fragmentations of a migrant identity can be traced through objects and material culture, held within the recesses of collective memories that host spiritual cosmologies in queer orientations. While investigative acts of gathering and conservation run throughout Katki’s art practice, his writing contextualises the repurposing of historic material through ongoing engagements with storied narratives and biomythography. Both practices may examined through contemporary Indigenous frameworks, where the historic and the personal trace the nature of (our) relationships with sites and embodiments. Katki's work has been exhibited across Oceania, Asia, north america and europe. His work is held in various public and private collections internationally. In Aotearoa Areez Katki is represented by Tim Melville Gallery in Tāmaki Makaurau and by McLeavey Gallery in Te Whanganui-a-Tara. In India he is represented by Tarq Gallery, Mumbai.
