Rana Begum @ Parasol Unit
30 June 2016 - 18 September 2016
An exhibition by Rana Begum, the Bangladeshi-British artist’s first solo presentation in a public institution in the United Kingdom, bringing together a selection of past and recent works in The Space Between. Drawing influences from constructivist and minimalist art, Begum’s two- and three-dimensional works and installations clearly reveal the sophistication of her spatial and visual awareness. Her works are so irresistibly engaging that viewers find their response to them is both emotional and intellectual. In one work, No. 531, 2014, thirty parallel sections of industrially powder-coated aluminium bars hang vertically on the wall. Each front-facing surface is white, while the inner and outer sides are sprayed in bright hues of red and blue. Passing in front of the work, viewers discover dynamic shifts in its colour and form. Light is a vitally activating element in Begum’s works, its shifts and changes producing an experience that is both temporal and sensorial.
