Jasleen Kaur (b.1986) is an artist based 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.
Recent commissions include the Victoria & Albert Museum, Goethe Institute, Eastside Projects and Art on the Underground. Her work is part of the permanent collection of the Royal College of Art and Crafts Council.
Represented by Division of Labour.

Social Event. Curated by Love Unlimited.
Taking place in a public swimming pool, Social Event is a sculptural and performance-based event that’s immersive in the most literal sense. Performances will take place in and around the pool. Sculptures will be floating and submerged, with the audience viewing the work from within the water.
The artists respond to the public pool’s political history, the context of health and leisure, as well as issues concerning the body and gender by making diverse works which require activation through audience participation, both directly and through more subtle means.
