Let’s Take Back Control, 2018
2018 – ongoing
Jasleen has created a new range of colour changing heat sensitive mugs for the honesty cafe at Eastside Projects.
Jasleen Kaur (b. 1986, Glasgow. Lives and works in London.)
Brought up in a traditional Sikh household in Glasgow, her work is an ongoing exploration into the malleability of culture and the layering of social histories within materials and objects. Refashioned objects are often based on instinct and resourcefulness, reflecting a hybridity of national custom and reconsidering the realities of materiality, usage and everyday routine. Jasleen works across the UK and internationally with recent commissions including the Victoria & Albert Museum (2017), Baltic 39 ‘Figure Three’ (2016) and ‘Art on the Underground’ (2015). She was also featured in ‘Production Show’ (2017) at Eastside Projects. Her work is part of the permanent collection of the Royal College of Art and Crafts Council.
