Contemporary & Mid C20th - Photography

Radhika Khimji & Lee Miller curated by Coralie Malissard - Portraits in Space

Tue-Sat: 12-6pm

Radhika Khimji, Lee Miller: Portraits in Space is curated by Coralie Malissard, bringing together two female artists' responses to time spent travelling through barren landscapes.

This is the first time that Radhika Khimji (born 1979), one of the few artists to represent Oman in its inaugural pavilion at the Venice Biennale this year, is exhibited in conversation with an avant-garde photographer. Her works on plywood belong to a new body of work and Sapling is delighted to be exhibiting never before seen archival material from the artist's London studio.

Lee Miller (1907-77) is one of the most fascinating figures of 20th Century photography yet, aside from the iconic Portrait of Space (1936), the works she made in the late 1930s have had little exposure, perhaps because they mark a transition between her celebrated Surrealist phase in Paris and her later work as a courageous war photographer. This particularly intimate body of work however proved pivotal in her development as an artist.
