Nep Sidhu’s art practice resides along a continuum comprised of conceptual and technical components originating from ancestry, with relevance for the present. His sculptural practice combines language, light-baring materials, and incantation thus creating a third space that unifies endless parallels and possibilities. Sidu’s work is informed by the interplay of script, textile, the poetic wave of architecture, and an affinity for community; linking the ancient with the here and now. His work has been featured in The Museum of Contemporary Art (Toronto ON), the Aga Khan Museum (Toronto ON), The Frye Museum (Seattle WA) and The Aichi Triennale (Nagoya, Japan).
