Click to enlargeCHILA KUMARI BURMAN : SELF-PORTRAIT IN SUGAR
Jul 1 - 21, 2017
Chila Kumari Burman played a crucial role in the emancipation of the image of an Asian woman since 1980. Burman, breaks the stereotype of a submissive and motherly figure through subversion of the popular images of womanhood. Found images are often a starting point for her heavily embellished portraits, partly figurative, partly abstract where seductive silhouettes are confronted with bold verbal narrative, prints of the artists’ body and punk slogans. Burman treats her own image as a point of departure for her in-depth analysis of both Eastern and Western imagery. This show will present her historic and contemporary work.
