Hardeep Pandhal’s Nightmare on BAME Street is a developing animation, comic, knitwear and rap tour de force. Birmingham born, Glasgow based, Pandhal is developing new knitted work in collaboration with his mother, a new comic animation and a reading list, based primarily on written experiences and mythologies surrounding motherhood across a variety of cultures. The production methods Pandhal adopts and the broader historical influences in his work are directed towards creating provocative viewing experiences that blur the categories of social realism and psychedelia.
