Idris Khan: Absorbing Light




Comprising a monumental sculpture, a multi-part installation, paintings of geometric and stripe formations, and works on paper, Absorbing Light is the most comprehensive exhibition by Idris Khan in London in four years.

The exhibition marks an important departure for Khan, who will show works in bronze for the first time along with an entirely abstract painting. Uniting aesthetic and metaphysical questions, Khan has often employed techniques of layering and repetition to realise fragmentary experience or disparate ideas as a single image or solid form. In these new works, two- and three-dimensional forms are triggered by a desire to ascertain how scale, mass and volume are perceived, measured or remembered in times of sensory deprivation or through compromised and fragmentary accounts.
