SITARA ABUZAR GHAZNAWI_ SIN CITY

Auto Italia presents Sin City, the first UK solo exhibition by Sitara Abuzar Ghaznawi.
The exhibition presented a body of newly commissioned site-specific sculptures and drawings that continue Ghaznawi’s investigations into the classist and racialised structures of Western taste and aesthetics. Using salvaged, commonly available materials often considered lowbrow in the context of Western aesthetics, this series of material assemblages seeked to challenge dominant codes of institutional display and accepted ideas of craft and taste.
