About

Rana Begum’s meditative and transformative work blurs the boundaries between sculpture, painting and architecture. It has affinities with the built environment and her use of repetitive geometric patterns – found both within Islamic art and the industrial cityscape – also takes its inspiration from childhood memories of the rhythmic repetition of daily recitals of the Qur’an.

Begum imposes order and structure through the frequent use of prefabricated mass-produced components, such as in her Mesh Installation that creates an immersive experience in the gallery space. Order, sequence and repetition are animated further by the application of alluring colour. Different materials and surfaces reflect and absorb light, whilst hues and colours create a range of chromatic effects provoking changing sensations as we move in and around her works and the spaces they occupy.

The Exhibition is organised by the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, University of East Anglia, in association with Djanogly Gallery, Nottingham Lakeside Arts.
