What lies beyond our fixation with corporeal representation and objectification of everyday articles?

About

With a practice that overlaps architecture and interiors, painting and written script, Saif Osmani's latest exhibition explores the notion of The Anti-Object through a sequence of 'found' objects, creating cross-cultural semiotic links between London (UK), Mecca (Saudi Arabia) and Sylhet (north-east Bangladesh).

By drawing meaning from pre-existing narratives in space, a reality of continuous dimensional experiences becomes possible, beyond concretised religious settings and iconography.

Paintings of Jesus Christ and the crucifix are re-attributing to an Islamic aesthetic, symbolic buildings and spatial environments are materially examined, from the constructs of a stall at a street market to an exploding Kaaba, reconstructed.
