Prem Sahib’s (British, born 1982) sculptures and installations explore both formalism and autobiographical themes. Sahib’s practice is being informed by what the artist calls a “sexed-up minimal aesthetic”, with his sculptures revealing his exploration of forms and affinity to minimalism in their simple geometry. In “Shape of Thought” Sahib presents a lone black-tiled tower entitled “Crew Cut” along with a series of YDNU tiles that further develops Sahib’s interest in using ubiquitous materials, such as ceramic bathroom tiles. At first the work might appear abstract and minimal, formally clean and precise. However each is begat from convictions regarding intimacy, sexuality, relationships and desire.
