Hear Dr Cliff Lauson, curator of Dappled Light and Director of Exhibitions at Somerset House, introduce Rana Begum’s extraordinary works on display at Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery.
Dappled Light is a solo exhibition by artist Rana Begum RA, showcasing striking works which explore the perception of light, colour and form and blur the boundaries between sculpture, architecture, design and painting.
The exhibition sets up a dynamic dialogue with John Soane’s design of Pitzhanger as the works respond to the Manor’s architecture, sightlines, and intricate interior decorative schemes. Several works are displayed beyond the Gallery around the Manor, responding strikingly to its spaces.
Works on display include a newly-created large-scale suspended mesh installation which reveals soft veils and layers of colour and Rana’s first video work, which captures the fugitive light in a woodland outside the artist’s city home as it cycles through the seasons during a year of lockdown.
Tickets £10 including glass of wine.
