Rana Begum (b. 1977, Bangladesh; lives in London, UK) blurs the boundaries between sculpture, painting and architecture. Her visual language draws from the urban landscape as well as geometric patterns from traditional Islamic art and architecture. Light is fundamental to her process. Her works absorb and reflect varied densities of light to produce an experience for the viewer that is both temporal and sensorial. Recent solo exhibitions include Space, Light, Colour, Djanogly Gallery, Nottingham, 2018;A Conversation with Light and Form, Tate St Ives, 2018; The Space Between, Parasol Unit 2016; and Rana Begum, Delfina Foundation, London, 2010. Recent group exhibitions include Frieze Sculpture Park, London, 2018; Actions. The image of the world can be different (part 1), Kettle’s Yard, 2018; Tribute to Sol Lewitt, Gemeente Museum Den Haag, 2016, as well as the 11th Gwangju Biennale, 2016. She was awarded the 2017 Abraaj Group Art Prize and Jack Goldhill Award for Sculpture in 2012.
