Palestinian Swedish artist Tarik Kiswanson explores rootlessness, regeneration, and renewal in a body of work that encompasses sculpture, writing, performance, drawing, sound, and video art. Published on the occasion of Nest, his exhibition at Hallands Konstmuseum, this volume reflects the diversity of his practice and deep engagement with the poetics of métissage: a means of writing and surviving between multiple conditions and contexts. His work, which he describes as “the border, the window, between the iris and the world outside,” offers a cosmology of related conceptual families, each exploring themes like refraction, disintegration, levitation, hybridity, and polyphony through its own distinct language. Kiswanson’s investigations of displacement and interstitiality specifically relate to what is lost and what is gained among first-generation migrants.
