AND is proud to present It’s Cool, I’m Good, the first UK solo exhibition of works by American artist Stanya Kahn.
Characterised by her signature blend of dark comedy, visceral characters and reluctant optimism, Kahn’s exhibition features a selection of recent drawings and video works. The video works navigate personal trauma, resilience and recovery. Mundane interactions and casual jokes belie a deeper consciousness of environmental concerns and social and political alienation.
Whether made of flesh and blood, plastic or crumpled paper, her characters’ struggle for success (or mere survival) in a profoundly absurd world is thrown into relief by an underlying current of self-deprecating and occasionally fragile humour.
