Visual artist Hardeep Pandhal will be at Cove Park for two weeks to focus upon new work commissioned by Glasgow International. Pandhal will present a new installation, ‘Self-Loathing Flashmob’ at Glasgow’s Kelvin Hall from 20 April – 7 May 2018.
The work of Pandhal carries a satirical and acerbic cartoonish drawing style, employed across different media including sculpture and animation. He often draws upon his background as a second generation British Sikh raised in the industrial West Midlands city of Birmingham to reflect on the psychological and material effects of assimilation in broader society.
Pandhal lives and works in Glasgow and graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2013. Recent solo exhibitions include: Konfessions of a Klabautermann, Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival (2017); A Nightmare on BAME Street, Eastside Projects, Birmingham (2017); Hobson-Jobson, Collective, Edinburgh (2015); Plebeian Archive, David Dale Gallery, Glasgow (2015); A Neck or Nothing Man!, Comar, The Isle of Mull (2015); A Joyous Thing with Maggots at the Centre, Castlefield Gallery, Manchester (2014).
