'Everything Is Happening At Once'
‘Everything Is Happening At Once’ at The Cornerhouse, Manchester, is the first solo UK exhibition by Asian artist Rashid Rana. Rana’s work explores how physical realities and social practises affect our culture and identity. He is also particularly interested in the contrasts we find in everyday life. This interest manifests itself in the exploration of both two dimensional and three dimensional fields found in the artist’s pieces. Rana uses a mixture of both micro and macro images in his work, which surrounds the idea of whole vs. fragment that many of the pieces in this exhibition embody. He uses the theme of abstraction as the core of his artwork, however his techniques are not abstract.
