Zarina Bhimji @the Whitechapel Gallery

I went along to the late night opening of Zarina Bhimji’s exhibition at the Whitechapel gallery tonight. Loved this exhibition more than anything I have seen in a while! Especial like the film and sound pieces. Interesting, thought provoking, emotional images. Beautiful observation. The imagery combination with sound pulled me in to another place, another world. Though her images are without people, she focuses on the landscape of abandoned desolate buildings, and the gorgeous close up observations of textures of long forgotten files on office shelves… the threads that bind them together, and the play of light on cobwebs formed next to the bullet holes in Entebbe airport. Zarina photographs locations in such a way that a narrative is clearly visible without the need to show people.
