Tarik Kiswanson

As Matthieu Jacquet points out in an article for the Pompidou Center in Paris, Tarik Kiswanson was “born in the small town of Halmstad, in Sweden, to Palestinian parents exiled in the 1970s. He has always kept one foot in his native country and the other in the Middle East, where he has gone every year since his birth. Like many second-generation immigrants, the artist was exposed to the imperatives of conformism and integration in the country adopted by his parents but  was constantly reminded of his roots by the predominantly white society in which he evolved. He moved from Sweden to Paris 14 years ago.”

Through diverse and transversal practices such as sculpture, writing, performance, drawing, sound and video works, the thirty-year-old addresses the theses of uprooting, belonging, memory but also those of transformation and regeneration in his personal journey as well as  in the history of the contemporary world.

“I am a second-generation immigrant and my work is largely inspired by notions of  displacement and uprooting.” Tarik Kiswanson

Obtaining the Marcel Duchamp Prize is the high point of a year 2023 marked by three solo exhibitions around the world: one at the Museo Tamayo in Mexico, one at the Bonniers Konsthall in Stockholm and another at the Salzburger Kunstverein in Salzburg. In 2022, Tarik Kiswanson’s works were shown at the Lyon Biennale, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Antwerp (Belgium) and at the Hallands Konstmuseum (Sweden). In 2021 he had an exhibition at the Carré d’Art – Museum of Contemporary Art in Nîmes in 2021, and in 2019 he participated in New York’s Performa 19 Biennale.

Tarik Kiswanson graduated from Central Saint Martins, London (2010) and the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-arts in Paris (2014). The most recent winners of the Marcel Duchamp Prize were Mimosa Echard (2022), Lili Reynaud Dewar (2021) and Kapwani Kiwanga (2020).

The ADIAF and the Marcel Duchamp Prize

Founded by Gilles Fuchs and chaired since 2021 by Claude Bonnin, the ADIAF (Association for the International Diffusion of French Art) brings together 300 collectors of Contemporary French art.

The exhibition currently dedicated to Bertille Bak, Bouchra Khalili, Massinissa Selmani and Tarik Kiswanson can be discovered on the fourth floor of the Parisian museum until 8 January 2024.

According to Xavier Rey, Director of the National Museum of Modern Art, this “exhibition represents, thanks to the excellence of the four finalists, the best of the French artistic scene. With Tarik Kiswanson we honor an extremely accomplished multidisciplinary work, both in its formal dimension and in its relationship to history. Based on the energetic relationships between various elements, his works aim, with great sensitivity, to convey a universal message.
