In this talk, artist’s Idris Khan & Annie Morris will explore Idris Khan & Annie Morris: When Loss Makes Melodies, elucidating the stories woven through this exhibition. They will explore how over their decade together, they have come to influence each others work. How Morris’ vibrant use of colour has nudged Khan towards a broader palette, and other subtle but influential ways that their individual practices converge. They will also consider how their art forms a parallel narrative with Sir John Soane’s life, revealing connections between contemporary artistic expression and the historic setting of Soane’s neo-classical architecture.
Annie Morris (b. 1978, London, United Kingdom) is a British artist who utilises tapestry, painting, and drawing in her work. Morris studied at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris between 1997 and 2001 under Giuseppe Penone before completing her education at the Slade School of Fine Art in London in 2003. Morris is best known for her ‘Stack’ sculptures, which comprise colorful, irregularly shaped orbs arranged one atop another in vertical strings. In this series, which was initiated during a period of grieving following a miscarriage, spheres appear to hover above the floor on plinths on which they rest, forever threatening to topple over—a nod to both the miracle of life and its precarity.
Idris Khan (b. 1978, Birmingham, United Kingdom) Since completing his Master’s Degree with a Distinction in Research at the Royal College of Art in London in 2004, he has received international acclaim for his minimal, yet emotionally charged photographs, videos and sculptures and is without question one of the most exciting British artists of his generation. Drawing on diverse cultural sources including literature, history, art, music and religion, Khan has developed a unique narrative involving densely layered imagery that inhabits the space between abstraction and figuration and speaks to the themes of history, cumulative experience and the metaphysical collapse of time into single moments.
Both Morris and Khan live and work in London.
