Hardeep Pandhal lives and works in Glasgow. Pandhal works with non-linear forms of digital video which layer lurid hand drawn cartoons, psychedelic and disorienting narratives with his own rap music, presenting them within wider installations and wall drawings. For the Jarman Award, Pandhal presented from a body of work that reroutes the misogynist and racist imagination underpinning white supremacy into cartoon phantasms that haunt contemporary life. The frustrations of societal structures are projected into satirical cartoon worlds, where viewers are presented with seemingly infinite perspectives of recurring yet disjointed scenes.
