Bethlem Gallery is delighted to announce the first UK presentation of Sara Haq’s drawings Things I did that nobody noticed (but that changed everything) commissioned for the 10th Berlin Biennale in 2018. The exhibition also features Putting paper in her ears, new photographic works and objects from Haq’s recent journeys in consciousness.
Grounded in practices of healing and alchemy, Haq’s works are at once both visceral and immediate whilst inviting us to take the plunge into complex ideas and in unraveling metaphysical conundrums; described by the artist as ‘delicate equations of energy and matter’. Haq is adept at turning our attention from the minutia of daily experience and personal narrative to urgent questions relating to the mind and body, to society, nature and medicine as well as our agency within them.
Over the course of the exhibition, we will be releasing details of events as well as the launch of a newly commissioned book to accompany metaphysical conundrums, produced by Book Works and featuring contributions from Asiya Waddud, Paul Goodwin, Tamar Yoseloff and Yvette Mtumba.
