Satpreet Kahlon creates beautiful installations in striking, sumptuous materials that call into question the unseen boundaries and tacit assumptions that permeate art-world dynamics, often incorporating a critique of how the exhibition venues that show her work are complicit in these systems. For the group show BorderLands, her installation contained a tongue-in-cheek takedown of the premise of running an exhibition about national borders in tandem with a commercial art fair. Her 4Culture show features, among many other things, two similarly shot videos of the artist and her mother mopping their kitchen floors. That one is considered "art" while the other is typically regarded as a mere gesture of domestic labor speaks volumes about the kind of production we value, and as a result, the individuals we tend to ascribe cultural value to.
