Tarik Kiswanson, Residency January to July 2020
Tarik Kiswanson (°1986, Halmstad) is a visual artist and poet. His work encompasses sculpture, writing, performance, drawing, sound, and video works. Notions of rootlessness, regeneration, and renewal are central themes in his oeuvre. Always operating at the intersection of different cultural contexts, his various abstract works examine subjects related to memory, heritage, birth, loss and belonging. His oeuvre 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.
