Opening is on Monday 16 March from 6-9pm.
JAMM presents Curiouser and curiouser, a solo exhibition by Simeen Farhat, showcasing a number of new sculptures and a large installation inspired by the story of Alice in Wonderland, written by Lewis Carroll. In doing so, the artist revisits her long-time interest in language and poetry as the vehicles of human experience. In Farhat’s work, however, it is not the logic and formal structure of language that interests her but the symbolic forms which place human language at the crossroads between art, sign, symbol, sculpture, communication and representation. With a definite focus on the process of making art rather than on the production of cultural objects, this sculptural work is conceived in terms of perception and never as ornament or calligraphy. These material alliterations are constructed as living organisms, acquiring shapes almost intuitively.
Exhibition is ongoing until 16 April 2015
