EXHIBITION

 

Truth & Art is a new exhibition by the celebrated visual artist / photographer, Sunara Begum exploring the relationship between three global artists/musicians and their work. Through her portraiture, digital tapestry and montage her work brings us into their world and delves deep into their musical and creative practice.The images of Sunara Begum are evocative and timeless and she has developed an original and unique visual language that is distinctly her own. Combining paint on 16mm film with archive images and her own B&W portraiture Begum captures the music, culture and traditions of three continents. In this exhibition she tells the story of the ancient and modern and illustrates the fragility and impermanence of seeking truth in art.
