For the final day of the exhibition, Ranbir will create a new rangoli installation piece at Centrala. The rangoli will be used as a dance floor for the performance of Nisha Nath – a Midlands based dancer inspired by traditional Indian movement choreographies.
Pop in for some snacks and Indian sweets as well!
Out of The Frame featured handcrafted South Asian arts and crafts created by rangoli and textile artist, Ranbir Kaur. It showcased Ranbir Kaur’s expertise in traditional Indian crafting techniques and the knowledge acquired from her extensive research of South Asian craftwork conducted over her 30 year long career.
Coming from a textile background, Ranbir Kaur has refined her skills in Indian craft making passed down to her from her elders and strived to expand her understanding of South Asian artistry. She has traveled across Asia, researching different forms of creativity and craftwork, including tie dye in Bhuj in Gujarat, India and felt making in Istanbul, enabling her to combine different techniques to create unique and contemporary takes on traditional artforms.
The title ‘Out of The Frame’ is inspired by the integral use of frames within Ranbir Kaur’s creative process.
