2021 Eye Artist-in-Residence

Imran Channa is a Pakistani visual artist who lives and works in Pakistan and in the Netherlands. Channa works with different art media (installation, drawing, painting, digital, moving image and sculpture) and draws attention to the ingredients required for the process of documentation, highlighting how history is recorded, framed and manufactured via photography, archaeology and literature. Channa is interested in the role played by these modes in the perversion of knowledge and the construction of consciousness. In Eye, Channa will focus mainly on the collections of images from the former Dutch colonies.
