Tash Kahn

Get to know SqW:Lab 2018 fellows – today we speak to artist, Tash Kahn.

Where can you be found?

Anywhere surrounded by friends.


Gum and ringpulls, Tash Kahn, 2018

Tell us about a creative action you have taken this week.

I take photographs every day. Some are used; all are kept.

What does ‘home’ mean to you? 

Home to me is the Janis Joplin song ‘Me and Bobby Magee’. Whenever I hear that song I am home.

What was the last thing you drew?

I wanted to say my curtains! Seriously though, the last thing I drew was a chair in Portugal a few weeks ago. It was the first thing I have drawn for a while.

Tell us about 2 of your most subtle influences.

My son and any walk I take.

Please share your thoughts / a few words about your expectations of the SqW:Lab fellowship, of being in Mumbai and the project in total.

I hope this experience will enable new collaborations, both with people I know and people I don’t. My practice is becoming increasingly collaborative and I am excited by the play projects. It will enable me to view my practice from a new perspective. I am looking forward to all the new conversations – each new conversation holds potential for me and I hope my time in Mumbai will spawn many future strands of my practice.
