Hemali Bhuta at Jameel Arts Centre
Belonging, security, individuality and change build the foundations of Hemali Bhuta’s multidisciplinary art. Drawing from her personal experiences, memories and philosophical understanding, Bhuta’s site-specific sculptural works, titled Fold, explore in-between, transitory spaces. The works are comprised of organic and natural materials like rubber, cotton, spices, twigs, gold and natural dyes, spread across the room to varying effects. Some lie on the floor while others redefine the space to create a palpable tension between the works, material and their inhabited room.
Hemali Bhuta’s Fold draws from the Art Jameel Collection for the Artist’s Rooms series. These solo exhibitions feature innovative artists, particularly those from the Middle East, Asia and Africa, and are curated in dialogue with the artist themselves.
