Full press release below:
Radhika Khimji, born 1979 in Oman playfully employs methods of construction on the surface of an image, intentionally destabilising the relationship between figure and ground to reassemble a fragmented body and make it abstract. Terms are set in flux placing painting, drawing, photography and sculpture up against each other to allow for a place between many polarities to emerge. Khimji has developed a collaged way of working informed by the physicality and materiality of the making process to deconstruct, evade and erase constructions of formulated identities.
She borrows from a surrealistic language to shift cultural stereotypes and make visible a body screened by certain censorships.
In 2017 Radhika Khimji participated in the artist-in-residence program of Galerie Krinzinger and presented her artistic results in the solo exhibition Becoming Landscape at the Krinzinger Projekte. With her solo exhibition Shift, her latest works will be presented in the Galerie Krinzinger for the first time.
