ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Born in Durban in 1977, Sharlene Khan completed both a BA (Fine Arts) and MA (Fine Arts) at the University of Durban-Westville, before moving to Johannesburg to complete a second Masters degree in Fine Arts at the University of the Witwatersrand. She has exhibited in group exhibitions in Durban, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Switzerland, India, France, USA, Sweden and Holland, and has held solo shows in Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town. Since 2002 she has participated in international residency programmes and visual art workshops in Cape Town, Johannesburg, KwaZulu-Natal, Cairo, France and Italy. Her work for over eleven years has focused on street trade and the large informal economy in South African city centres. Although primarily a painter, Khan's paintings are often presented with a range of media resulting in installations and performance pieces incorporating fashion, music, video, ink and charcoal drawings in mock fashion presentations.

Her work, as of 2008, has increasingly focused around issues of identity and family history. Her series What I look like, What I feel like features staged photographic portraits of the artist which portrays images of how she thinks others view her juxtaposed against images of how she views herself. These dualistic portrayals question images of the self and representations of otherness, complicating perceptions of contemporary urban womanhood, race, class and identity.

Khan has also been extensively involved in various mural projects in the KwaZulu-Natal region between 1999 and 2002 and is also a freelance writer and curator. She coordinated and co-curated The ID of South African Artists in Holland in 2004, has participated as both curator and artist in the 10 Years, 100 Artists Project by Bell-Roberts Publishing (2004). In 2008, Khan, as a member of the Dead Revolutionaries Club, co-curated the Esikhaleni – Spatial Practices exhibition (an official Joburg Art Fair fringe exhibition). The Dead Revolutionaries Club is a non-profit collective which presents visual art
classes, talks and a website that engages with cultural production in southern Africa. Khan was an events coordinator at the Humanities Graduate Centre at the University of the Witwatersrand (Johannesburg) from 2006 – 2009 and lectured at The University of South Africa in the Department of Art History, Visual Arts and Musicology (Pretoria) from January 2010 – September 2011. She is currently a PhD candidate in Arts at Goldsmiths, University of London.
