Affan Baghpati’s work is imbued with his collection of antique items from the local markets of various cities of Pakistan. He travels and searches for discarded vintage household items, once functional but now often found idle at metal and furniture retailers. These discarded objects, once functional in regional Pakistani household and most parts of South Asia, are either losing or have already lost their value, presence and function which represents old regional design and material culture. These rare finds are intriguing to him as most of them are no longer in production or domestic use. Later, the collected items become the axial of his studio inspiration; he deconstructs the forms, redesigns motives and creates new hybrid objects with notional functionality. These hybrid objects, from casted fragments, enlightens one, not just with the history of the design culture but also engages the viewer with their aesthetic sensibilities that are no more practiced in this age of plastic.
