About the artist
Employing seminal texts, musical scores and paintings as well as key works from the photographic oeuvre, Idris Khan transforms the cool art of appropriation into a meditation about authorship and time. To create his works, Khan often photographs a variety of material - sometimes borrowed, sometimes of his own creation - in series and digitally layers the results, accentuating certain areas or adjusting the light, shade or opacity of the images so that resonant composites are created. Khan's work challenges our assumptions about various media - how they are received and digested. Words and music, which we experience sequentially and which gain power from repetition are to an extent robbed of their function by becoming almost solid images. Born in Birmingham, England, in 1978, Khan lives and works in London. His work has also been included in group shows in The Saatchi Gallery, London, (2010) Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (2010) and he has also exhibited at Art Dubai (2008).
