This exhibition ‘Avtarjeet Dhanjal’ initiated by the Institute of International Visual Arts in collaboration with Pitshanger Manor and Gallery brought together a range of works produced by Avtarjeet Dhanjal’s after his arrival in Britain from India in the early 1970s. It combined sculptures from three distinct phases in his career, previously unexhibited drawings and newly commissioned installations. His earlier sculpture utilises the high elasticity and low specific gravity of aluminium. These works are charged with the latent kinetic movement of air and human touch. Later sculptures juxtapose raw stone or timber with manufactured metals, referring to the uneasy relations between nature and technology, celebrating skill and craftsmanship on one hand and delighting in the qualities of natural forms on the other. His more recent work, balancing the heavy density of slate with candlelight and water, seeks to reconcile polarities and resolve symbolic tensions. The exhibition was shown from 8 August – 20 September 1997 at the Pitshanger Manor and Gallery, London.
