In Tayeba Begum Lipi’s first solo show in London, the Bangladeshi artist presents works that exemplify her very literally cutting-edge artistic practice. Running from 27 February – 31 March 2013, Never Been Intimate will be on show at Pi Artworks, London after debuting at the gallery’s Istanbul location in late 2013, also marking the artist’s first show in the Turkish capital. The exhibition at Pi Artworks Istanbul will showcase a selection of Lipi’s new works, from 2012 and 2013, and with their evocative titles, including The Nighty, Touch Me and Personal Entity, are both alluring and deadly, angry yet sad, drawing in yet pushing away. They are a testament to Lipi’s extremely personal stories and observations, and yet, in their cold, white beauty, embody a tenderness that one could never hope to hold.
