"Hobson-Jobson" frames Hardeep’s research into processes of translation, uneasy humour and his interest in stories of identity and difference.

About

Hardeep Pandhal’s practice encompasses drawing, sculpture, video and knitting. The title Hobson-Jobson refers to a Victorian-era glossary of Anglo-Indian words. These colloquial terms are highly assimilated, typically vulgar adoptions of foreign words into English. Hobson-Jobson frames Hardeep’s research into processes of translation, uneasy humour and his interest in stories of identity and difference. The exhibition will bring together new drawings and videos building on this research and re-worked autobiographical material such as home videos, to tell conflicted stories around the artist’s own identity.
