Dubai: ‘Artist’s Rooms: Seher Shah with Randhir Singh’ will be at Jameel Arts Center in Dubai from March 7.

“Brownfield Estate”

New Delhi-based artists Seher Shah and Randhir Singh have collaborated on a series of works entitled “Studies in Form.” Shah is a graphic artist and Singh a photographer who trained as an architect. The series “draws on overlapping tropes in architecture, photography, drawing and printmaking.”

“Dentsu Head Office”

Shah and Singh focus on “fragmenting the architectural components” of five buildings in New Delhi, London, Tokyo (pictured), and Dhaka, which shared a number of visual features including “heavy massing, the sculptural use of concrete, and repetitive structural grids.”

“Flatlands Blueprints”

Along with their photographs of the five buildings, the artists also present a series of drawings — mock blueprints — which offer a different perspective and “explore notions of incompleteness and uncertainty as a counterpoint to determined architectural expression.”
