Meet the Artist: Bharti Kher

  • Sat Sep 28 2019 - Sat Sep 28 2019 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM

On the first public open day of the exhibition, ‘Bharti Kher. A Wonderful Anarchy’, join the artist Bharti Kher for a unique tour and introduction to the exhibition, where she will share key themes and ideas. The tour will be followed by a Q&A session. The exhibition presents new work by Bharti Kher, following her three month residency with the gallery in 2017. This is the artist's first solo exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Somerset and marks a return to the most elemental themes within her practice. Kher, who works across a multitude of forms, will present a body of sculpture, installation and paintings. In the process of transforming found objects, and continually experimenting with materials, she layers references: to the mythological and scientific, secular and ritualistic, physical and psychological. At the center of all works is the abstraction of shape and confluence of time in a provocative meeting of materials. This is a free event, but must be booked in advance.
