Idris Khan: The World Within

Hatje Cantz, June 2017


London-born Idris Khan (born 1978) layers various kinds of found imagery―for example, every page of the Quran, the scores for Beethoven's sonatas or every J.M.W. Turner postcard from Tate Britain―in a way that condenses the colors and shapes so much that they become abstract. Published by Hatje Cantz Verlag on the occasion of Idris Khan's recent major survey exhibition at The New Art Gallery Walsall, this fully illustrated monograph was designed by Herman Lelie, in close collaboration with the artist, and features a new essay on Khan's work by Oliver Basciano.
