Frith Street Gallery is delighted to announce an exhibition of new work by Dayanita Singh. Over the last 40 years Singh has created pioneering works that cross genres, explore the boundaries of photography and expand our perception of the photographic image. She liberates the medium from its traditional places, creating interconnected bodies of work replete with both poetic and narrative possibilities. To create these, Singh draws on her extensive and ongoing pictorial archive that is constantly in motion and continuously refined. This show explores in part the intersection of photography and architecture, it includes a major series of wall-based pieces as well as a structural installation.

The exhibition opens with a large photograph of a flower, one of two monochrome images of Poppies which have a decidedly sensuous presence. The first appears to be in a somewhat dishevelled state, likened by Singh to someone who has just tumbled out of bed, while the delicate semi-translucent petals of the other seem to create an effect akin to a photographic negative.
