This was the seventh in a series of talks exploring sculptural practice today, celebrating the Year of Sculpture in the run up to Yorkshire Sculpture International in summer 2019.
In February 2019, Jasleen Kaur spoke at Leeds Art Gallery about her practice and recent projects. 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 in the material and immaterial things that surround us.
Listen to Jasleen Kaur’s talk below:
Jasleen Kaur’s practice examines the hierarchy of histories and labour using a range of mediums and methods, including sculpture, video, conversation and cooking.
Kaur (b.1986) is an artist currently living and working in London. She has studied at The Glasgow School of Art and the Royal College of Art, London. Recent and ongoing commissions include Glasgow Women’s Library, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, MIMA, Serpentine Gallery and Eastside Projects. Her work is part of the permanent collection of the Royal College of Art and Crafts Council. In 2018 Kaur was artist in residency at MIMA, Middlesbrough.
This series of talks were programmed in partnership with Leeds Beckett University, Leeds Art Gallery and Yorkshire Sculpture International.
