Osman Khan's avatar Osman Khan

Osman Khan is an artist interested in constructing artifacts and experiences for social criticism and aesthetic expression. His work plays and subverts the materiality behind themes of identity, communication, economics and public space through participatory and performative installations and site-specific interventions. House is a full-scale gallery installation that references a traditional home but in decidedly minimalist terms. Experiencing the work calls the viewer's attention to the ideas of the house as an object and form, but more profoundly to a myriad of concepts—from the personal to the communal, the social to the psychological—we each carry about a house, and by extension, home.
