Seher Shah’s drawings, prints and sculptures explore ideas around space, landscape, objects and aesthetics. This Artist’s Room features two major works: a three-part graphite drawing, Emergent structures: relative noise, planar landscape and capital mass, and Studies in form, a collaborative body of work with photographer Randhir Singh. Studies in form draws on overlapping tropes in architecture, photography, drawing and printmaking. The work comprises a series of cyanotype prints that build on a long-term interest in concepts of architectural scale and sculptural intent.
Drawn largely from the Art Jameel Collection, Artist’s Rooms is a series of solo exhibitions by influential, innovative artists, with particular focus on practitioners from the Middle East, Asia and Africa. These capsule shows are collaborative and curated in dialogue with the artist. Spring 2019 features rooms by Seher Shah with Randhir Singh, Hemali Bhuta, Farah Al Qasimi and Chiharu Shiota in galleries 1, 2, 3 and 10.
