Lost [Found] Landscapes
Lost [Found] Landscapes is an immersive installation by artist Katya Khan that is a part of her ongoing multimedia project consisting of research, drawings, sculpture, and street interventions. The exhibition focuses on accidental or vernacular compositions that occur in the urban landscape and draws from certain points of beauty and complexity only possible where their cleansing rituals coincide. Those compositions are filled with archaeological information about who else has occupied the spaces we inhabit, and helps us see our everyday surroundings in a new way.
The artist will build the installation over the course of the exhibit, inviting public to observe the creative process through the window, or join in during open hours.
