From his early composite photographs to more recent paintings and sculptures, Idris Khan’s work frequently employs techniques of layering and repetition – of images, texts, musical scores – raising questions about the nature of memory and experience. Currently on view at Victoria Miro in London, ‘Idris Khan: The Seasons Turn’ is an exhibition of paintings and works on paper created over the past 12 months, inspired by Vivaldi’s concertos and reflecting on the events of the past year (until 15 May).
Where is your studio?
Near Newington Green in East London.
What do you like most about the space?
It has a beautiful row of windows in the roof that allows light to fill the space. I also love the height, and because it’s on a mews it’s very quiet most of the time.
