Artist of the Collection

Tarik Kiswanson

Born in 1986 at Halmstad, Suède

Tarik Kiswanson’s work encompasses sculpture, poetry, photography, performance, and video. His artistic practice outlines a fluid and shifting politics of identity that reflects the cultural diversity, exile, and interbreeding that have marked the artist’s personal life and career. Immersed in the issues of the border and the in-between, his work seeks to merge Eastern and Western traditions, art and design, or object and sculpture in an attempt to become part of a form of collective history.

Born in 1986 in Halmstad, Tarik Kiswanson is a Swedish artist of Palestinian origin. He studied at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London before graduating from the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts in Paris in 2014.
