OUTPUT gallery is excited to resume its 2020 programme after lockdown with a solo exhibition by Chila Kumari Singh Burman (b. 1957, Liverpool, England). For her show at OUTPUT, Burman will be exhibiting a showreel of three moving image works. These include her latest video made during quarantine in collaboration with Susanne Dietz titled ‘Armour (2020)’ alongside ‘Dada and The Punjabi Princess (2017)’ and ‘Candy Pop and Juicy Lucy (2008).’ Burman’s practice spans across form and media and she writes that her approach to subjects is grounded in ‘a tradition of graphic political satire, generated from an adversarial position within the gender and identity politics of a post-colonial, class-oriented, and visually saturated contemporary Britain.’
The artist first studied at Southport College of Art and Design before going onto complete a BA in Printmaking at Leeds and an MA from the Slade School of Art. Burman now lives and works in London, where she also has this year’s upcoming Winter Commission to transform Tate Britain’s facade.
