Kahn/Selesnick

Richard Selesnick and Nicholas Kahn have been collaborating as Kahn/Selesnick since 1988 on a series of complex narrative photo-novellas and sculptural installations. They were both born in 1964, in New York City and London respectively and both are British citizens. They met at Washington University in St Louis where they collaborated informally from 1982-86 as photography majors. After graduation and a couple of years of showing their art separately they migrated to Cape Cod, Massachusetts to work on an evolving series of projects, some painting based, some photo based, all involving fictional attributions, narratives and sculpture. Between 1988 and 1995 they worked on installations combining painted portraits on plaster panels, bread, honey and wax sculptures displayed in wooden ritual architecture. A residency at The Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown Massachusetts helped them create an elaborate full-scale oaken chapel; ‘Der Ruteloft des Bet’ubten Bienenkaisers (The Rood-Loft of the Drunken Beekeeper) with 120 painted panels, all of heads in profile sprouting psychoactive plants from their mouths.

Nicholas Kahn lives in a 1925 Sears Kit House in Hudson NY with writer, activist and healer Sarah Falkner along with two cats , two rabbits, and three hermit crabs. Richard Selesnick lives in a Victorian villa in the village of Rhinebeck, NY, with his wife, child, border collie, and a deft mouser. They maintain satellite branches of the Royal Excavation Corps in Bantry , County Cork, Ireland, and in Truro, Cape Cod.
