Observational Realities

Observational Realities is a sculpture installation commissioned by Clifford Chance. In association with the University of Arts London (UAL), Clifford Chance runs an annual sculpture award to support an artist at the completion of their postgraduate studies. Saroj Patel won the 2020 Clifford Chance Sculpture Award but due to the pandemic the installation was postponed until February 2022. 

Observational Realities is a site specific installation inspired by the light, reflections, time and space. It takes references from Indian rituals, ceremonies and festivals and Saroj’s childhood experiences.
