Zarina Bhimji

Zarina Bhimji

  • 16 July — 27 September 2015

New Art Exchange is proud to present Jangbar (2012/2015), a new film and sound installation by leading British artist Zarina Bhimji. This eagerly anticipated piece joins Bhimji's portfolio of works in film, which includes the critically acclaimed Yellow Patch (2011). Jangbar, filmed on 35mm in Kenya, is 26 minutes 37 seconds long and is installed as an immersive single screen, HD projection with surround sound. The piece is an enquiry into image, light, object, the universal, the literal and the abstract. It has grown from observation and ambiguity, yet at other moments it draws from a deep, at times bleak, political consciousness of specific moments in history.

Bhimji was born in Mbarara, Uganda and grew up in Leicester, UK. Amongst her many accomplishments, Bhimji's first film Out of Blue debuted at Documenta XI, Germany, in 2002; she was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2007; and she presented a mid-career retrospective at The Whitechapel, London, in 2012. Her work is held in many private and public collections including Tate Britain, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, the Kadist Art Foundation, Paris and the UK Government's Art Collection.
