Presented by USF Centre Gallery at Centre Gallery, Tampa FL

Aug 07 - 18 2017
Kick, Push


Centre Gallery is pleased to present Zakriya Rabani’s solo exhibition Kick, Push. Rabani uses installation, sculpture, and drawing in his exhibition. He uses everyday objects to construct a new language that transcends language itself.
Rabani is a graduate student entering the last year of his master degree in fine art. With a concentration in sculpture and a background in sports, Rabani’s unique perspective is demonstrated in his immersive installations and intricate line drawings.
“We are taught or pressured to act a certain way as we grow. We are given “options” and “choices”, a reoccurring pattern of words that make us feel in control. I want to understand this system that, to me, seems flawed. I feel the need to fix those flaws using language. Groomed by a life of teaching and coaching, I have had a constant urge to share what I know. I seem to crave togetherness. In my current practice, I use line as a method of exploration, it is the main key in my art production and the progressive development of my mind. Through sport and language, I am able to expand my interests of communication involving the responses of the body. By using ordinary materials, a lifelong experience of being within an institutional structure and what I see as simplicity, I am moving forward to create work that can be intricate with precision and form a new set of boundaries. Yearning to be a Sherlock in the modern world, I have a need for solving puzzles and uncovering hidden messages that have been left behind – a never-ending, ever-changing multiplex of occurrence. Ultimately, I seek work that can translate my language, hoping for the possibility of togetherness and comprehension.”
