Jasleen Kaur - Alter Altar
Wed - Fri 12 to 5pm
Sat 12 to 6pm
Sun 12 to 5pm
Jasleen Kaur (b.1986) was born in Pollokshields, Glasgow, not far from Tramway. In Alter Altar, she fills the main gallery with sound and makes a temporary space to gather. The exhibition presents a new body of sculptural and sonic works exploring improvisation and political mysticism as tools to reimagine tradition and agreed, inherited myths.
Through a series of installations and kinetic, musical sculptures, Kaur works with sonic memory and the cultural resonances of everyday materials and objects. Axminster carpet, bottles of blessed Irn Bru, political flyers and salvaged family photographs are re-worked to evoke new cultural readings. By weaving together vernacular objects and sound, she considers how political ideologies are carried in community spaces.
