Meet Zarina Bhimji, an artist engaging with cultural and social politics, light and colour. ‘I feel that culture should be coming from all sorts of voices’, says the artist. ‘And I think when I’m feeling fed up of working I remind myself why that is important.’
We visit Zarina’s London studio to discover five personal objects that have inspired and informed the artist’s work: a camera, a pair of shoes, a photograph, a scarf and a book.
Zarina’s latest work includes ‘Lead White’ 2018, an installation of photographs and textiles at Tate Britain. Its title – the name of a white pigment used in painting until the nineteenth century – is a metaphor for the painterly feeling of the work.
