PREM SAHIB

From 30-11-2013 To 07-01-2014

Marian Cramer Projects is pleased to present the second solo exhibition by the London artist Prem Sahib (1982) in the gallery. Prem Sahib’s works and installations explore both abstract and autobiographical themes. He is known for his minimalist sculptures with an affinity for simple geometry and sparse palettes.

The show will feature cast footballs that appear to have been kicked or rolled in from the outside (Stray II), a new series of tile works pierced by fake diamond earrings arranged in constellation–like compositions, as well as a new silver sweat panel (Work that body IX).

A video projection Another Night, made from Sahib’s father’s VHS recording of fireworks in their garden during Sahib’s childhood, can be watched from a crash mat.
