Rana Begum: Dappled Light


25 Mar 2022
to 11 Sep 2022

Rana Begum: Dappled Light

Pitzhanger presents a solo exhibition of work by artist Rana Begum RA, with striking works which explore the perception of light, colour and form and blur the boundaries between sculpture, architecture, design and painting.

Dappled Light 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.

Rana Begum: Dappled Light is curated by Dr Cliff Lauson

Rana Begum: Dappled Light follows a presentation at Mead Gallery, Warwick Arts Centre from 13 January – 13 March 2022

“Fleeting moments of infinite beauty”
