Asim Waqif was born in 1978 in India. He lives and works in Delhi. A graduate in architecture, Asim Waqif has a practice turned as much toward art as design, but always closely linked to town planning and policies for the use of public space.
Demolition, deconstruction, the in-between stages are central to his installations, created in situ, whether it be on a river, or on a piece of derelict land. His works are backed up by thorough research, as the notion of context is of critical importance to his practice. Asim Waqif tries to mix tradition and technology in a gesture that is poetic but not devoid of risk.
