Exhibition: Sahej Rahal 'Barricadia'
16 September 2017 until 29 October 2017
Cove Park and CCA Glasgow invited Mumbai-based artist Sahej Rahal to spend ten weeks in Scotland this summer. Since July, Rahal has been developing a new body of work on residency at Cove Park to be presented in CCA’s gallery spaces as his first solo project in Scotland.
The exhibition emerges from a grimoire and a collection of artefacts excavated from an imagined land – Barricadia – charting its borders and histories. The objects and narratives that construct this place repurpose and stitch together fictional encounters upon historical fact and contemporary events from India. The exhibition is part of a wider episodic dialogue about Rahal’s practice, where sculptures and performances have been expanded and remade across a series of exhibitions, firstly at Primary, Nottingham in 2017 then travelling to MAC, Birmingham in 2018.
