I am looking for you like a drone, my love presents new large-scale photographs by Aziz Hazara (born 1992 Wardak, Afghanistan, lives and works Berlin, Germany) and vintage carpets by unknown makers from Afghanistan.

Deeply impacted by the withdrawal of international troops from Afghanistan in 2021, Aziz Hazara has created new works that document the packaging, electronic waste, furniture and random junk left behind after two decades of foreign occupation. Combining these images  with antique carpets from the region, I am looking for you like a drone, my love alludes to the complexities of being human in a landscape of change and continuity.
