The Conservatory x Ranjani Shettar

24 May-16 Jun 2024

Barbican Art Gallery
London EC2Y 8DS


Our Conservatory hosts a spectacular new site-specific commission by Indian sculptor Ranjani Shettar.

Cloud songs on the horizon is the artist’s first major institutional show in Europe and features five new, large-scale suspended sculptures across the entirety of the Conservatory space.

Shettar’s sculptures are each handcrafted by the artist and draw inspiration from the complexity of nature – using a range of materials including wood, stainless steel, muslin, lacquer and techniques that have been adapted from traditional Indian crafts.

Special late-night openings on Fridays offer visitors a chance to explore the much-loved tropical oasis after hours, and we'll be announcing dates when the space will be open exclusively for community and school groups to enjoy.
