Slaves of Fashion, The Singh Twin’s most recent body of work, includes life-size symbolic portraits of historical figures which are presented as vast digital fabric light box artworks to reveal the full intricacy of their design and the eclectic, detailed, symbolic and narrative style for which The Singh Twins are renowned.

Collectively these demonstrate not only the beauty, and craftsmanship of Indian fabrics as a highly desirable commodity in an age of expanding western exploitation colonialism but also invite us to consider the human and environmental cost of luxury goods.

Light box artworks and satirical paintings on paper also focus on the British Empire’s relationship with India and the wider legacies of colonialism, as a well as present-day debates about identity, racism, globalisation, fair labour; the politics of trade and climate change that relate in some way to Imperial racial attitudes and colonial commercial practices of the past.

Everyone welcome
