AboutThis new body of work by Jasleen Kaur for Humber Street Gallery began with the encounter of a text written by a member of the artists family; a charmed item acting as a point of connection to missing relatives.
The artist explores our relationship with visceral emotions such as grief and ecstatic healing, and unpicks the intricate and interconnected relationships with women who have shaped her. In this series of predominantly sculptural works, play and making become tools for memory and to create a new language for understanding the body and feelings.
Traditional practices and objects that facilitate healing are remixed. Works are ingested, processed by the gut beyond the gallery walls and excreted. The exhibition is a chance to engage with the body and senses, and to digest the work – quite literally.
