The next exhibition at Cubitt will be a solo show by Hardeep Pandhal. The works in the show span a year’s production, culminating in Pandhal’s most recent video work Pool Party Pilot Episode which is showing both at Cubitt and at the New Museum, New York as part of their 2018 Triennial “Songs for Sabotage”.
Pandal’s work employs lurid colour and content to create work in an array of media. His sketches and texts borrow from a variety of sources such as comic books and political satire and collaborations span crochet, knitting and embroidery with his mum and musical partnerships with friends and musicians.
Liar Hydrant shows a body of work that reroutes the misogynist and racist imagination underpinning white supremacy into cartoon phantasms that appear to affect contemporary life. The frustrations of societal structures are projected into satirical cartoon worlds, where viewers are presented with seemingly infinite perspectives of recurring yet disjointed scenes.
