This is the first solo exhibition in the UK by the Amsterdam-based Indian artist Praneet Soi.
The Mosaic Rooms has commissioned Soi to create a new body of work of paintings and drawings informed by his recent stays in Palestine.
As a painter, Soi explores techniques such as silverpoint and anamorphosis, developed from his use of photographic and archival imagery. His recent audio-visual installations implement a cut-and-paste aesthetic to generate a polyphonic narrative.
His commission for The Mosaic Rooms expands on this work through the collection of notes and drawings in plein-air on his visits, followed by researching and selecting archival imagery in the UK. These accumulated materials are then translated into drawings, paintings and a video and sound work in the artist’s studio in Amsterdam.
