Additional Information

Chila Kumari Singh Burman has generously created Without Us There Is No Britain, 2021, a limited edition print on the first anniversary of the Tate Britain Winter Commission, Remembering a Brave New World, 14 November 2020 – 28 February 2021.

Burman’s Tate Britain Winter Commission, which opened during Diwali, the Festival of Light, transformed the gallery’s façade into a colourful exploration of Hindu mythology, Bollywood imagery, colonial history and personal memories. For her limited edition, Without Us There Is No Britain, 2021, Burman has re-imagined a preparatory drawing for one of the neon light installations from Remembering a Brave New World as a vibrant and sparkling silkscreen print.

Without Us There Is No Britain, 2021, depicts a figure with raised fist, inspired by the issue one cover of Mukti, a feminist magazine by and for Asian women published in the UK in 1983. It combines a powerful message with a celebration of what Burman describes as Bollywood-inspired ‘bling’. Each print has been embellished with metallic foil, hand-applied paper quill hearts and a spot of fuchsia glitter. The limited edition comes unframed and is signed and numbered by the artist.

Prices of the artwork are liable to change. As a limited edition sells out, prices of the artwork are subject to increase and the price will be clearly indicated.

Chila Kumari Singh Burman (b. 1957, Liverpool, UK) studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and has been working experimentally across printmaking, painting, sculpture, photography and film since the mid-1980s. She is celebrated internationally for her practice which is rich with autobiographical details and inspiration from her Punjabi and Liverpudlian heritage. Burman mashes up stereotypes to create new identities beyond the limitations imposed on South Asian women in a British cultural context.

In 2018, Burman received an honorary doctorate from University of the Arts London for her impact and recognised legacy as a British and International artist. In 2020, Burman was selected into the Art Workers Guild as a Brother. Burman’s work is held in a number of public and private collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Wellcome Trust in London, and the Devi Foundation in New Delhi.
