I am interested in our bodies, their weight, the actual corporeal feeling of them, our denial of
them, hybridity, sexuality. I am interested in religious and ceremonial aesthetics and symbolism-
how we as humans make sense of ourselves.
My practice combines photography, sculpture, installation, performance, and video. I explore
issues of violence, political conflicts, and human behaviors by deconstructing iconic cultural
imagery as a form of critique and analysis.
Clifford’s work investigates the intersection of aesthetics and violence; he is currently at work on a
group of large-scale drawings based on early 20th-century carnival shooting galleries using ink
and inlaid paper.
My image archive stems from a serious, almost forensic interest in how images are made, how they’re formed both physically and theoretically. I’m interested in making things that explore how we all remember and idealise each other.
Through colorful works that on first glance look playful and whimsical, Khanâ€™s work illuminates a dark and complex political struggle with violence and identity that takes place through, on, and in public vehicles.
