Nils Alix-Tabeling

Nils Alix-Tabeling is an artist whose practice includes sculpture, performance, video and sound installations, writing and his own curatorial projects

"The visual artist Nils Alix-Tabeling produces a singular body of work that questions our human futures in a rapidly changing world. Resolutely symbolist, even surrealist, his sculptures, installations, paintings, texts and performances are full of references to magical and ancient practices as well as to certain queer stories and legendary figures. The humanoid figures he sculpts coexist in a transhistorical, syncretic and intuitive approach, heterogeneous and chimerical identities, hybridizing gender categories and the kingdoms of the living and even the non-living. The result is a sophisticated and complex universe whose vital energy is devoted to making the invisible visible by dissolving the boundaries between reality and fiction." Text by Magali Gentet
