Jasleen Kaur is a Scottish Indian artist based in London. Brought up in a traditional Sikh household in Glasgow, her work is an ongoing exploration into the malleability of culture and the layering of social histories within materials and objects. Refashioned objects are often based on instinct and resourcefulness, reflecting a hybridity of national custom and reconsidering the realities of materiality, usage and everyday routine. Recent commissions including the Victoria & Albert Museum, Goethe Institute, Baltic 39 Figure Three and Art on the Underground. Her work is part of the permanent collection of the Royal College of Art and Crafts Council.
Selected recent exhibitions include Against Landscape—Reid Gallery, Glasgow; The Learned Society of Extraordinary Objects—Somerset House, London; Synthetic Landscapes—Weston Park, Meadow Arts, Shropshire; Reportrait—Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery, Nottingham; Production Show:Artists House—Eastside Projects, Birmingham; F U G A Z I, Division of Labour, London
