Rana Begum at Pitzhanger Manor
Dappled Light is a solo exhibition of work by the Bangladeshi-born artist Rana Begum RA, exploring the perception of light, colour and form within sculpture, painting and installation.
The exhibition, Begum’s first solo show in a public gallery in London for six years, sets up a dynamic dialogue with John Soane’s design of Pitzhanger.
The installations respond to the Manor’s architecture, sightlines, and intricate interior decorative schemes. Several works are displayed beyond the Gallery around the Manor, responding strikingly to its spaces.
Works on display include a newly-created large-scale suspended mesh installation, which reveals soft veils and layers of colour, and Begum’s first video work, which captures the fugitive light in a woodland outside the artist’s city home as it cycles through the seasons during a year of lockdown.
