Inspired by the work of neuroscientist Faraneh Vargha-Khadem into children with developmental amnesia, Jasleen Kaur’s installation at Hantverk & Found examines how our memories define who we are as individuals.
Associated events accompany the exhibition:
Kaur’s film ‘Balti, Unmeasured Measurements’ about Langar, the Sikh practice of serving a free meal at temples, will be screened on a loop whilst visitors can experience Langar themselves – with free Indian food served to all.
Exhibition 26th August – 2nd October Thursday – Sunday 12pm – 4pm
Langar / Film Screening 22nd September 12pm - 4pm
About The Artist- Jasleen Kaur is a Scottish Indian artist based in London. She is fascinated by the malleability of culture and how social histories become embedded in materials and objects. Her refashioned objects are based on instinct and resourcefulness, reflecting a hybridity of national custom and reconsidering the realities of materiality, usage and everyday routine.
Jasleen is a visiting lecturer at The Royal College of Art and devises workshops and programmes for the Victoria & Albert Museum, Crafts Council, Art on the Underground and Sorrell Foundation. She exhibits worldwide and was awarded the Jerwood Makers Open in 2015. Her work is also part of the permanent collection of the Royal College of Art and Crafts Council.
