Description

If time were condensed into a single moment, the world might look like one of Idris Khan’s works of art. Born in Birmingham in 1978, Khan uses photography to create layered, abstracted, compressed memories of various media and experiences. Condensing all the pages of the Quran, all the scores for every Beethoven sonata, or every Turner postcard from the Tate Britain, Khan creates meditative, monumental palimpsests, reminding us of the fact that taking time and creating understanding are inextricably linked to one another.

In his appropriation of art, music, literature and philosophy, Khan manages to augment the aura of the original, to show us the beauty of repetition, and to lay bare the anxieties of authorship. This is a stunning book that demonstrates the astonishing forms of communion, commitment and artistry that human beings are capable of.
