Gallery Isabelle is proud to invite you to the opening of Disjunctions, a solo exhibition by Lubna Chowdhary. The exhibition foregrounds the artist’s distinctive breed of disruption—of material, of tradition, of expectations. While clay and ceramics constitute her principal pursuit, she subverts the expectations of this medium by exploring tensions between the handmade and the industrial, the domestic and the urban, ornamentation and minimalism. Her hallmark uses of colour and modularity coalesce in a show that fathoms two contrasting movements: on one hand zooming out to consider structural contexts (of language, for example, or the built environment); on the other, delving into the intricacies and minutiae of overlapping (machine-made) repetitions and (handmade) intuitions. The result is a show that revels in experiment, framing a succession of tensions, disjunctions, and upended dynamics.
