"Hassan Khan: Kompressor"
2006-05-26 until 2006-07-02
Gasworks Gallery
London, , UK United Kingdom

For his first major presentation in the UK, Hassan Khan will be undertaking an ambitious new project incorporating a residency, an exhibition and a series of off-site events. Khan’s practice includes video installations, collage, lecture performances, text works and also music performances. The work investigates issues surrounding personal experience in the urban metropolis, particularly in relation to its structures of history, power, class, culture and myth that subconsciously, but often visibly, affect inhabitants.

Using a compellingly striking and visceral visual language, Khan utilises audio-visual means to produce highly experiential settings to assimilate the work, often allowing visitors a space to open personal associations of the subject matters in question.

For his exhibition at Gasworks, Hassan Khan’s KOMPRESSOR project will present a newly commissioned installation, which marks a more experimental approach by the artist to exhibition-making. Khan will interpret collections of dreams through different forms such as video, sound and photography. These elements will connect with and disconnect from each other by their very nature and through personal encounter. Incorporating a new video, photographic elements, sound, music, and a collection of unique publications, the exhibition space will be architecturally reconfigured as a unified, experiential setting. In addition, the exhibition will include Khan’s acclaimed recent 4-channel video installation The Hidden Location.
