Thématique de travail . Work direction

Khimji’s work questions painting’s relationship to drawing, and the space within which the work is shown. Her instaled work attempt to bring the fantasy world of the work closer to the viewer by constructing different methods of display. The characters in her work are continously displaced, pivoting on deconstruction. There is an evident humor in making work this way, as the figure is always awkward and quirky due to the very method and nature of its facture.
The work is made strange to its environment, destabilized and incongruous, cut out, renegotiated or not negotiated at all. The process is crucial, it leads to the image and is never divorced from it. The viewer is left on unsure footing, in an attempt to create even ground upon which the work may be evaluated and measured.
