24th April 2024

The exhibition will be open daily 24 April and 7 May at The Lewisham Art House, between 12 noon-6pm.
The preview will be on 24 April, from 6 to 9pm, with live harp music by Shye Charles.

Palvinder Nangla’s upcoming exhibition at the Lewisham Art House will offer viewers an enchanting delight and an insight into how he expresses himself through embroidery art.

Inspired by the notion of the traditional theme of dowry, Antenna will be an exhibition of 40 antennas as if each of them were a piece of an Indian wedding dowry; the 20 days and 20 nights of a traditional wedding are expressed in the 40 pieces that are a delicate presentation of lunéville embroidery techniques.

Using embroidery he mastered in his studies in Paris, Palvinder enters a meditative state of mind, connecting with the fact that nothing is ever permanent, always in motion, moving back and forth, like the movements between positive and negative, or black and white. The pieces then become a focus for clarity and calm, like the items of a dowry, important, nostalgic, meaningful and grounding.

Access to WiFi and an outdoor working area is also available.

Besides paying rent studio members are required to contribute at least 5 work hours per month in support of Lewisham Arthouse. These work hours provide staffing for our Learning, Exhibition and Events programmes as well as the running of the building and keep both the studio rents and facilities affordable. Roles are hands-on and include; working on the rolling program of exhibitions and events, fundraising, implementing education programmes, PR, health and safety and building maintenance. It’s a great way to gain professional skills and valuable experience of working within an active and friendly community organisation. Studio membership is allocated according to artistic consistency, the qualities a candidate can offer the working cooperative, a positive attitude and a commitment to be present in Lewisham Arthouse for a minimum amount of time each month. We are an equal opportunities group and will endeavour to meet each individual’s needs as much as possible.
