Hira Nabi works with film, video, archival material, sound, and text to build layers of meaning out of every day events. She works with memory, nostalgia, and daily rituals as an aesthetic trope. Using the camera as a form of archiving, and as documentation of the continuous present, her work is experimental in its splicing of fiction and documentary. She is currently a graduate student at the New School, where she is researching cinematic culture and spectatorship practices in urban Pakistan.
She graduated from Hampshire College with a BA in video and post colonial theory.
