We love the primeval-looking works of Hemali Bhuta, an Indian artist who creates site-specific installations such as Stepping Down – a dramatic piece that makes for a cave-like experience, using several thousand wax stalactites to simulate candles.
Fred Sandback’s work from the 1960s is distinctly minimalist in its aesthetic, looking at line in its most clinical form; while the enormous doodling of Turkish team,
Özlem Gunyol and Mustafa Kunt aim to provide a comment on geopolitical issues, with the lines representing the crossover of different nationalities and the idea of borders between countries.

American artist Adrian Esparza will be exhibiting a new work, which also draws its inspiration from the idea of national borders. For the piece, Esparza mounts a traditional Mexican blanket, or serape, onto the wall, which is then partially unwound. The cotton thread is then weaved through a grid of nails to form a geometric pattern, while also referencing the idea of history unravelling.
