Artist Rooms: Seher Shah and Randhir Singh

Installation view at Jameel Arts Centre, Dubai, 2019

Recent work by Pakistani-American artist Seher Shah and Indian photographer Randhir Singh, both of whom are New Delhi-based, currently occupies an Artist’s Room at Jameel Arts Centre (until 8 June). An exercise in drawing volume and void, Brutalist architecture and spatial abstraction, their images suggest multiple drafts of the same surface, where the line becomes both movement and redaction mark, gesture and erasure. On a micro-level,architectural tropes are fragmented and flattened in repetitive grids, removed from context.On a macro-level, the project raises questions about the discourse of artistic production from the Global South and its regional specificities.
