19 SEPTEMBER – 14 OCTOBER 2017 OPENING RECEPTION: TUESDAY 19 SEPTEMBER 2017, 6–8PM MARIAN GOODMAN GALLERY LONDON
Born in 1964 in New Delhi where he lives and works, Kanwar has distinguished himself through documentary films and multi-media works which explore the politics of power, violence, sexuality, and justice. His multi-layered installations originate in narratives drawn from zones of conflict and are characterized by a distinctly poetic approach to the social and political. Presented at Marian Goodman Gallery London, Such A Morning, navigates transitions between juxtaposing states of minds, with each character seeking the truth through phantom visions from within the depths of darkness. Such a Morning was premiered at documenta 14 Athens and Kassel.
Amar Kanwar has exhibited internationally at such institutions as the the Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois (2013), Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Wakefield (2013), Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary-Augarten, Vienna (2013) the Fotomuseum Winterthur, Zurich (2012), the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2008) and the Whitechapel Art Gallery, London (2007).
