Rana Begum: The Space Between - SOLD OUT£45.00
Rana Begum, 'The Space Between', publication, 2016.
To mark the occasion of the exhibition, Rana Begum: The Space Between, Parasol unit has published this comprehensive, limited edition publication.
Drawing influences from constructivist and minimalist art, Begum’s striking two- and three-dimensional works and installations reveal the sophistication of her spatial and visual awareness. Begum is not only inspired by her surrounding urban environment but also by her own childhood memories of the geometric patterns of traditional Islamic art and architecture. Thus, properties of light, colour, material, movement and form have become a hallmark of her abstract sculptures and reliefs. Often bringing a potentially infinite order to her works, Begum skilfully gives physical form to fleeting moments of aesthetic wonder.
Printed in a limited edition of 500 hand-numbered copies, the publication includes an interview with the artist by Ziba Ardalan and essays by writer and critic Oliver Basciano and writer and curator Murtaza Vali.
Edited by Ziba Ardalan for Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art, London.
