Narielwalla is an associate artist of the Eagle Gallery / EMH Arts, London. He began working with the gallery in 2017 when Emma Hill selected Narielwalla’s work for the group exhibition Migrations, which explored themes of location, migration, and diaspora through an installation of mixed-media works. The migratory aspect of ideas and material was expressed in images and artists’ books that re-purposed data from various found sources in order to construct new visual and metaphorical narratives.
In 2020 Hill wrote an introduction for Rock, Paper, Scissors, an artist’s book inspired by Barbara Hepworth’s studio garden in St. Ives which was published under the EMH Arts imprint. Hill exhibited the bookwork alongside a collection of the original collages in the form of a solo show in September of that year. In 2021 EMH Arts co-published Diamond Dolls with Concentric Editions, which will be launched with a solo exhibition in July 2021
In September 2021 the Eagle Gallery celebrates its 30th anniversary in conjunction with Tate’s acquisition of the Eagle Gallery / EMH Arts Archive. The archive holds the records of over 300 exhibitions, publications and off-site projects, together with background to Emma Hill’s work as a curator and writer. As an on-going research resource, it traces the development of the gallery and imprint since 1991 and includes many examples of artist’s books and catalogue publications up to the present, with recent editions by Carolyn Thompson Post Moderns (2020) and Narielwalla’s Rock, Paper, Scissors; Supernova (2020) and Diamond Dolls (2021). The archive also hold a pair of lithographs – Dancing Diamond Dolls and 3 prints from the Supernova Series.
