Idris Khan - White Windows, April 2017 - 2019
Drawing inspiration from the history of art and music, as well as key philosophical and theological texts, Idris Khan investigates memory, creativity and the layering of experience. He is well known for his large-scale works – in media including sculpture, painting, and photography. The density and precision of his images allude to the excess of information in the technical age while encouraging a slower and more engaged way of looking and responding to our collective history and culture.
The artist has donated this limited edition print that will be used to benefit The Photographers' Gallery public programme.
Khan created this limited edition print of an image taken from his recent White Window series. Over the past 5 years, Khan has been capturing the marks and gestures made by the anonymous people who paint the white windows of businesses that have closed down around the UK, and Europe. He superimposes up to twelve photographs to make one image. These new monochromatic prints seem to obfuscate a picture beneath, and within this highlights an important social and political context.
