Kirushan Sivagnanam: Nightmares

16th September – 14th October

An artwork with a roughly hand-shaped outline, with swirled patterns painted within in black and white. Against a pure white background. Artwork by Kirushan Sivagnanam.

Kirushan’s process begins with the questions “who am I?” and “am I changing my identity or are my surrounding changing it?”. His work is a search for identity within changing physical, psychological and ideological landscapes. He also focuses on compassion, and how important this quality has been to him since his arrival in the UK.

“Nightmares” will run in Gallery 6 from 16th September – 14th October. Free entry – check our Visit Us page for full visiting information.


Friday 15th September: Artist’s performance. To celebrate the opening of the exhibition, Kirushan will be staging a performance in the gallery from 6:30pm. Free entry, all welcome.
