Event excerpt

Through interventions over images, pictures taken and transferred on to planes, Khimji pushes on the edges of the works to allow the viewer to think through shapes, geometry, and the body to find a density relational to itself within the shape of the panels. The surfaces of the works become places to traverse, to cross and make flat, mapping out areas of vastness and emptiness, cutting through spaces as different densities of mark-making meet to highlight the tensions in temporality when the slow process of mark-making covers a photographic image which was taken very quickly. There is a subtle push and pull between whether the object is a painting, a drawing or a sculpture, where its identity is under question. There is always this need to evade the trap of identification.
Radhika Khimji (b.1979 in Muscat, Oman, lives and works in London, United Kingdom) studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and holds in MA in Art History from University College London. Select solo exhibitions include Adorning Shadows at Experimenter, Kolkata, 2021, Shift at Galerie Krinzinger, Vienna, 2019, On the Cusp at Stal Gallery, Muscat, 2018 and Becoming Landscape at Krinzinger Projekte, Vienna, 2017.
