Manish Harijan presents 'Where Do We Draw The Line?', an exhibition of new paintings exploring migration, memory, and mythology. Drawing on his experiences growing up in Nepal and the culture shock of moving to the UK, Manish’s work fuses Eastern and Western imagery in a cultural mixing pot that includes pop icons, mythological deities and personal artefacts.
Alluding to the circumstances that forced Manish to leave Nepal, this exhibition explores his feelings of statelessness and marginalisation as an ‘untouchable’ Dalit. It also highlights the transformative power of migration, where cross-cultural sharing and storytelling can inspire new ways of thinking and feeling.
A text by Sean Williams accompanies the exhibition, giving deeper insight into the events and symbolism which have informed the work.
The exhibition is open Thursday - Sunday - 12pm - 5pm.
