Jasleen Kaur

Jasleen Kaur (b.1986) is a Scottish Indian artist based in London. 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 within materials and objects. Refashioned objects are often based on instinct and resourcefulness, reflecting a hybridity of national custom and reconsidering the realities of materiality, usage and everyday routine.

Jasleen works across the UK and internationally with recent commissions including the Victoria & Albert Museum, Goethe Institute, Baltic 39 Figure Three and Art on the Underground. Her work is part of the permanent collection of the Royal College of Art and Crafts Council.

Recent commissions and projects include ‘Houses Are Really Bodies: The Writing of Leonora Carrington’, Cubitt Gallery, London (2017); ’Fugazi’, Division of Labour, London (2017); ‘Fountain 17’, Hull City of Culture (2017); 'Production Show, Eastside Projects, Birmingham (2017); ‘Collecting Europe’ Victoria and Albert Museum, London (2017); ‘Objects of Transcendence’ Watermans, London, (2017); ‘The Tending of Something’ Solo Show with FCA&C, St Andrews (2016); 'Crafting the Line' Art on the Underground, London (2016); ‘The Thing With Maltasingh’ Gallery SO, London (2016); ‘Floor, Wall, Garage, Magazine Rack’ Solo Show, Hantverk & Found, Margate (2016); ‘100 for 100’ Ben Uri: Past, Present & Future, Christie’s, London (2016); ‘Jasleen Kaur at my mum's house’ Sunridge Avenue Projects, Luton, London (2016); ‘Unexpected’ Ben Uri Gallery, London (2016); ‘Baltic39 Figure Three’ Baltic 39, Newcastle (2016); ‘Jerwood Makers Open 2015’, Jerwood Space, London (2015); ‘Migrations’ KANEKO Centre, Nebraska, NCAD Gallery, Dublin, ADspace, Sydney (2015).
