Press release

Tarik Kiswanson’s installations combines – in line with his poetry work - sculpture, sound creation and performance. Drawing from research on pre-adolescence - an age marked by fragility and a form of lucid perception of the world - the artist has composed an anthology of poetry in several chapters, which will be enacted by young boys. These texts take us right into the heart of a reflexion on the human condition, evoking both contemporary corporeality and the frontiers between countries and beings, or more generally, the porosity between two states which initially appear to be opposed.
