MFA Thesis Exhibition – Poetics of Materiality, It Is And It Is Not – Zahra Khan
Apr 9 – Apr 13 all-day
Artwork by Zahra KhanZahra Khan’s MFA Thesis Exhibition Poetics of Materiality/It Is And It Is Not is an investigation of materiality in contemporary art. In this show, the study of matter is a leitmotif in an artwork that aims to visualize the interrelation between socio-political and cultural construct, potentiality, spanning the scientific and the cosmic, while drawing on sources as wide-ranging as New Materialism and Contemporary Physics. It is by negotiating the relationship between the artist, the material art, the spectator and the space and within a vocabulary of coexisting opposites — such as past/present, human/non-human, physical/non-physical, visible/non-visible, external/internal, and particular/universal— that Zahra Khan explores concepts of intra-activity and the force, affect, of the physical artwork. Khan’s objective is to ascertain the significance of materiality as an extension of ontology through the force of substance experience of a work of art.
