Description

Permindar Kaur’s work investigates integration and belonging, particularly cultural identity and childhood. Through the exploration of adaption, mimicry and mirroring, she examines different strategies of integration and assimilation. She aims to challenge cultural constraints, acceptability and the rejection of difference. A running theme throughout all the work has been protection and defence. Whether through the use of armour, daggers or claws, any method of defence is limited and self-defeating. Soft fabric figures wearing armour/ claws hang limply unstuffed, unable to fight or shield themselves.
