Kashif Nadim Chaudry

Resident Artist
STUDIO A3

Nadim is a Nottingham born artist, of Punjabi origin, living and working in the East Midlands. He studied Textiles at Goldsmiths College, London, graduating in 2005 and continuing to developing his textile orientated art practice.

A family heritage in tailoring has been very influential for his work and has focused his creativity around the importance of materiality and craftsmanship. The heart of Nadim’s practice lies with the working, shaping and moulding of physical ‘stuff’.

Nadim’s current work is concerned with the idea of ‘power’ and of the ‘sacred’ and it is through researching architecture, ceremonial costume and religious iconography that he has been exploring these ideas. The construction of an identity, the idea of who we are and where we come from, is a central part of this. Nadim is fascinated by the schism between the socialized human and the human animal; the balancing act between what we should know and be, to what we feel and intuit.

Negotiating his sexuality as a gay man, within different cultural and religious spheres, has been a fertile ground from which his practice has taken root and continuously draws inspiration. This ‘negotiation’ has often translated literally into physical space; a question of how you choose to position yourself in the world. In relation, it is increasingly the sculptural and three dimensional possibilities within his work that address the issues of space and position, which fascinate him most.
