Jhaveri Contemporary presents a solo exhibition by the London based contemporary artist Lubna Chowdhury.

Code-switching, the ability to alternate between two or more discrete sign systems, is a faculty practised and perfected by all diasporic subjects, whose itinerant biographies commonly extend across national borders and between disparate linguistic and cultural contexts.

As a methodology, code-switching is integral to Lubna Chowdhary’s artistic practice which has long sought to stake out a sort of reconciliatory middle or common ground between various binary opposition: art and craft, East and West, ornamental excess and minimal restraint, industrial and handmade, architecture and body, and object and image.
