Harminder Judge

Born 1982, Rotherham, UK

Harminder Judge is an artist whose practice spans object making, performance and installation. Judge’s work has engaged with many subjects but there is a continuous exploration of portals, be it spiritual, political, or personal. His most recent body of work engages with a history of Indian abstract painting related to tantric ritual – borrowing techniques from Italian fresco and Indian reverse glass painting. Grounded in materiality, these pieces are talismanic, transportative, negotiating image and object relations, the physical and metaphysical.

Judge recently had a solo exhibition “Mountain and Mercies” at galeriepcp (2021, Paris, France). His work has also been shown internationally in various group exhibitions in venues such as Jhaveri Contemporary, Mumbai; The Sunday Painter, London; Halle 14 Zentrum für Zeitgenössische Kunst, Leipzig; galerie PCP, Paris; Kube Museum, Alesund; and The Royal Academy of Arts, London. In 2011, Judge won the Arts Foundation Fellowship Award in Performance Art. He is currently an associate lecturer at the Brighton School of Art in Brighton, UK.

Judge currently lives and works in London, UK.
