Yazan Khalili (1981) lives and works in and out of Palestine. He is an architect, visual artist, and cultural activist. His works and writings have been exhibited and published in different exhibitions and publications. Khalili’s photography is detailed, reflective and full of intent. Using photography and the written word, Khalili unpacks historically constructed landscapes. Borrowing from cinematic language, images become frames where the spectator embodies the progression of time and narratives. He has woven together parallel stories over the years, forming both questions and paradoxes concerning scenery and the act of gazing. All of which are refracted through the prism of intimate politics and alienating poetics. In particular, he focuses on the effect of geographical distance on our rendering of territory, and its ability to heighten or arrest our political and sentimental attachments.

Khalili’s work was part of the exhibition House of Wisdom at Framer Framed from 24 November 2017 till 7 January 2018.
