Jasleen Kaur

Jasleen Kaur’s work is about repurposing and realigning everyday objects and their associations with everyday tasks.

Investigating the natural hybridity of life through variety in cultural custom, routine and etiquette, Kaur reveals a malleable approach to materials and objects in their use. Her work draws attention to the disparity between custom and habit and constructs items based on how we live and do things rather than how we think we should or are expected to. Kaur sees herself as a cobbler, bringing together previously associated knowledge and ideas.

Jasleen Kaur is a Scottish Indian artist, brought up in a traditional Sikh household in Glasgow and now based in London. She trained in Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork and Jewellery at both Glasgow School of Art and the Royal College of Art London. Her works feature in the Crafts Council Collection.
