Event description

Description

Thursday 14th June


6 - 7:30pm

Jasleen Kaur (b.1986) is an artist currently living and working in London. Brought up in a traditional Sikh household in Glasgow, her work is an ongoing exploration into the malleability of culture and the layering of social histories within the material and immaterial things that surround us. Her practice examines the hierarchy of histories and labour using a range of mediums and methods including sculpture, video, conversation and cooking.


Recent and ongoing commissions include The Goethe Institute, V&A Museum, Eastside Projects, MIMA, Glasgow Women’s Library, Baltic 39 Figure Three and Art on the Underground. She was awarded the Jerwood Makers Open 2015 and her work is part of the permanent collection of the Royal College of Art and Crafts Council.

As part of Bloc’s Artist Development Programme, there are a small number of free one-to-one artists crits/feedback sessions available with Jasleen Kaur, ahead of her talk on Thursday 14th June.


If you think a one-to-one crit/feedback session with Jasleen would be useful to you at this time, please send just a couple of lines detailing why the opportunity is relevant to your current practice to kerry@blocprojects.co.uk .

Please note that with respect to our current funding commitments, portfolio crits as part of Bloc’s Artist Development Programme are only available to artists and creatives living or working in Sheffield.
