Sanctuary by Hormazd Narielwalla at Gallery Elena Shchukina from June 15th

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

Celebrating human life and our relationship with nature: Sanctuary by Hormazd Narielwalla a new exhibition at Gallery Elena Shchukina from June 15th.

The solo exhibition Sanctuary brings together bold new, accompanied with some existing artworks from the London based artist’s signature collage technique, using French antique sewing patterns as the conceptual and material starting point for each work. Painstakingly applying coloured and painted paper, acetate and textiles to fill in the planes between the lines, the artist breathes new life into these long forgotten patterns. Inspired by notion of the garden as a metaphor for society, Narielwalla’s works in Sanctuary gather as a multi-sensory forest, a refuge from the chaos of urban life and open up a space for contemplation and reflection.

“A sanctuary of ideas and beauty, for the preservation of life and of humanity. And what is human? We are just flesh and bone. Art, literature, culture, creation, design is what makes us human.”

Understanding the garment pattern as the closest geometrical abstraction of human bodies, Narielwalla builds on the legacy of Cubism to introduce a fourth dimension of time and movement into his exploration of the body – compressing the sensation of a moment in time into one single image, as experienced in the silent drama of the artwork Pilgrim.
