"At Kettle’s Yard, works such as “Synapse I” (1987-92) testify to a practice that, decades ago, was already dazzling in its command of emotion, aesthetics and a politics that is sure-footed but never heavy-handed." - @financialtimes In this series of hand-printed black-and-white photographs, the artist’s naked body becomes a screen for projected images taken during her first return trip to India between 1986 and 1987 after moving to England in 1966. The title 'Synapse' refers to the structures of our nervous system that carry information around our bodies. Each image contains a snapshot of a place Biswas visited, ranging from the landscape around her grandmother’s house to other sites she yearned to recall and recover. Visit #LUMEN before it closes on 30 January, in just over 2 weeks. Pre-book your free tickets in advance or come along to the gallery to book on the day. ✨🌙 @hummingbird_biswas 📸 @jounderhill
