Your Everyday Myths presents the uncanny, humorous, and multidisciplinary works of artist Zehra Khan.

The exhibition displays two bodies of work, large scale drawings on bed sheets and photographs of drawings on people. Both series engage a non-traditional approach to mark making on alternative surfaces. The quotidian bed sheet that typically wraps and holds the sleepy body connects to the corporal, domestic, and intimate. Working on both sides of the sheet Khan moves the pieces from two-dimensional to three-dimensional, from collage to malleable multilayered sculpture. By painting on the actual body, an initial act of performance to end up in still photographic form, Khan transforms her human friends into animals, protagonists who cavort and play with cathartic freedom. These human to animal manifestations also illustrate dichotomies of the hazards and good of human relationships between friends, intimates, and life partners.
