Tarik Kiswanson was born in 1986 in Halmstad, Sweden, where his parents exiled from the Middle East in the early 1980s. His work encompasses sculpture, writing, performance, drawing, sound and video works. Notions of rootlessness, regeneration, and renewal are central themes in his oeuvre. His practice reveals an engagement with the poetics of métissage: a means of writing and surviving between multiple conditions and contexts. His various bodies of work 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 received his MFA from École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts de Paris (2014) and BFA from Central Saint Martins - University of the Arts London (2010). He presented his retrospective exhibition Mirrorbody at Carré d’Art – Musée d’Art Contemporain in 2021. Other recent exhibtions include Ural Biennial (2019), Performa Biennial (2019), Centre Pompidou (2018), Lafayette Anticipations (2018), Fondation Ricard (2018), Gwangju Biennial (2018) and MUDAM - Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean (2017). His upcoming solo exhibitions in 2022 and 2023 include Bonniers Konsthall in Stockholm, MHKA - Museum of Contemporary Art in Antwerp, Hallands Konstmuseum in Halmstad and Salzburger Kunstverein in Salzburg. He has several upcoming publications in 2022: a new monograph with a focus on his sculptures Nest published by Hallands Konstmuseum and Mousse Publishing, a new collection of poems entitled The Window published by JBE Books and M HKA, and an exhibiton catalogue published by Bonniers Konsthall and Distanz.
