Chila Kumari Singh Burman brings bling and zing to FACT

Chila Kumari Singh Burman’s glitzy installation now open at FACT Liverpool.

Taking over with a mixture of culture-clashing visuals, neons and sculptures, the gallery will be an installation in its own right and a space for the presentation of artworks by FACT’s artists-in-residence. 

Chila Kumari Singh Burman’s unique visual identity was shaped by her working class childhood in a Liverpudlian household.

In this year’s HM The Queen’s Jubilee Birthday Honours List, Burman received a MBE for her vibrant and uplifting installations which are known for bringing people together.

With a nod to her recent accolade, the artist’s playfully titled installation, Merseyside Burman Empire is a kaleidoscope of colour, made up of layered collages, glitter and embellished motifs including Hindu deities, Bindis and tigers.

The gallery will host a series of 8-week long presentations by artists-in-residence at FACT. The newly designed gallery provides the artists with a space to experiment and engage with the public.

The first residency showcase opens from 28 September – 30 November 2022, featuring Agnes Varnai and Tina Kult (awarded the European Media Artist in Residence Exchange in 2022) alongside Lucy Hutchinson (Jerwood Arts x FACT Fellow 2022).
