Sheila Gowda @ Ikon Gallery
16 June 2017 - 3 September 2017
An exhibition of new installation works by Indian artist Sheela Gowda in response to Ikon’s gallery space. Sheela says the works ‘anticipate, counter or are inspired by the space to begin with; the elements could take on other variants in other spaces’. The result is a dialogue between what the artist finds in the gallery, and ideas and observations informed by her experience of living in Bangalore. Drawn to the meditative aspect of making by hand, the artist acknowledges local skills and craftsmanship by employing these methods herself. The pieces evoke a subtle symbolism through the poetic treatment of everyday materials.
