Exhibition tour of Entanglement: the Ambivalence of Identity with Artists Anthony Key and Nina Mangalanayagam.
Anthony Key’s sculptures use food to playfully unpick certain ‘Chinese’ stereotypes. A new installation for the window incorporates 8,000 chopsticks drawing attention to the restaurants and take-aways around the UK.
Nina Mangalanayagam’s work explores the fluidity of identities looking at family relationships and national identity. In the video piece Lacuna the artist attempts the ‘Indian Head Nod’ which is used heavily in South Asia; the photographic series Homeland comments on traditional absurdities and the struggle to fit in
Entanglement: the Ambivalence of Identity includes work by some of the most interesting young artists working today alongside established figures. Artists Simon Fujiwara, Anthony Key, Dave Lewis, Nina Mangalanayagam and Navin Rawanchaikul reflect on the complexities of living with more than one culture.
