Lubna Chowdhary: PLURIVERSE

Thu 4 July - Sat 21 December 2024

Graves Gallery

Lubna Chowdhary’s bold, hybrid creations deftly explore the interconnectivity of objects in the material world, across wide-ranging cultural contexts.

 

PLURIVERSE, a major new exhibition making its debut at the Graves Gallery, will present Chowdhary’s most recent work, including new drawings and sculptures developed during residencies in India and Italy earlier this year.

Chowdhary examines relationships between diverse visual languages, materials and processes, to make works which encompass the disciplines of sculpture, architecture and craft.

A 2017 residency at the V&A researching global design histories has gone on to inform much of Chowdhary’s work. For this exhibition, she has drawn upon Sheffield’s collection to select prints by Eduardo Paolozzi and historic Indian miniature paintings which are presented in dialogue with her work.

PLURIVERSE will include a range of Chowdhary’s installations and new works alongside Certain Times LII, 2021, a striking glazed ceramic landscape of geometric, architectural, tile forms which recently joined the city’s visual art collection, thanks to support from Art Fund and the JG Graves Charitable Trust.
