2018 Residency with Create and Fire Station Artists’ Studios – Hina Khan
Video by John Beattie
Hina Khan was the inaugural recipient of the Create and Fire Station Artists’ Studios Residency for an Artist from an ethnic minority background.
Hina’s work is the constant search for the best way to interpret ideas and express ideologies through symbolism. Using a mixture of traditional and innovative techniques, Hina’s work portrays social issues, immigration and humanitarian crisis like prostitution, gender discrimination, restrictions, trauma, child abuse and killing. This residency provided Hina space to work with freedom, enhancing her capabilities as an artist and provided an opportunity to develop her collaborative arts practice further, while immersing herself in contemporary Irish art practice.
