Our summer exhibition is by Paris-based artist Tarik Kiswanson, whose work encompasses sculpture, writing, performance, drawing, sound and video. Notions of rootlessness, regeneration, and renewal are recurring themes in his oeuvre. Born in Halmstad, Sweden in 1986 where his family exiled from Palestine, his artistic practice evinces an engagement with the poetics of métissage: a means of writing and surviving between multiple conditions and contexts. His various artwork can be understood as a cosmology of related conceptual families, each exploring variations on themes like refraction, multiplication, disintegration, levitation, hybridity, and polyphony through their own distinct language.
Tarik Kiswanson (*1986 in Schweden) lives and works in Paris.
Kindly supported by the Institut français d’Autriche and the Swedish Embassy, Vienna.
