Radhika Khimji ( b. 1979, Oman) lives and works between Muscat and London. Khimji studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and holds in MA in Art History from University College London. Khimji has developed a way of working informed by the physicality and materiality of the making process to deconstruct, evade and erase constructions of formulated identities. She questions categorisation and often plays with terms and the naming of things to generate a new narrative for an object and render it abstract from its loaded history.
