Ayesha Kamal Khan
Ayesha Kamal Khan’s work hovers in the anxiety of displacement. She addresses the tensions of polarity using impressions of provisional nomadic structures. She uses a variety of mediums including sculpture, video, drawing. Her more recent work is primarily installation based and is subject to change according to the site in question. Khan uses the language of provisional nomadic structures that assert their unreliability in their means of construction. She exaggerates these temporary solutions to claim land. The work looks for a balance, admitting in itself the lack thereof.
Ayesha Kamal Khan graduated from the National College of Arts, Lahore, Pakistan in 2011, and earned an MFA from Pratt Institute, New York in 2015. She lives and works between Brooklyn and Lahore. Khan has been exhibited at art institutions internationally, including the Queens Museum, and participated in the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2015.
