Unbound: Shahzia Sikander

October 15-February 18, 2021

West Court Gallery Jesus College, Cambridge, UK

Bagri Foundation presents the British debut of Pakistani American artist Shahzia Sikander Unbound. In the show, Sikander asks ‘Can decolonisation entail forms of intimacy?’ through a study of early modern archives of Islamic and South Asian manuscripts. The exhibition examines her innovations within manuscript techniques such as serialisation, cutting and pasting, and calligraphy. Sikander experiments with these practices in a range of media including drawing, painting, print, mosaic, animation, and, most recently, sculpture.
