|Chila Kumari Singh Burman
August 6 - 30
|OUTPUT gallery is
excited to resume its 2020 programme after lockdown with a solo
exhibition by Chila Kumari Singh Burman (b. 1957, Liverpool, England).
For her show at OUTPUT, Burman will be exhibiting a showreel of three
moving image works. These include her latest video made during
quarantine in collaboration with Susanne Dietz titled ‘Armour (2020)’
alongside ‘Dada and The Punjabi Princess (2017)’ and ‘Candy Pop and
Juicy Lucy (2008).’ Burman’s practice spans across form and media and
she writes that her approach to subjects is grounded in ‘a tradition of
graphic political satire, generated from an adversarial position within
the gender and identity politics of a post-colonial, class-oriented,
and visually saturated contemporary Britain.’
The artist first
studied at Southport College of Art and Design before going onto
complete a BA in Printmaking at Leeds and an MA from the Slade School
of Art. Burman now lives and works in London, where she also has this
year’s upcoming Winter Commission to transform Tate Britain’s facade.
