Born in Sweden, where he grew up, Tarik Kiswanson is of Palestinian origin. His sculptural and conceptual work focuses on the body, materials and perception. In particular, his work focuses on the physical encounter between the viewer and the work. Her interdisciplinary work encompasses sculpture, writing, performance, sound and video. The dialogue between these multi-faceted practices gives rise to a distinctive conceptual language. Generally produced in brass or steel, he polishes them to a mirror-like finish, giving the viewer an active role in activating and creating the pieces. The notions of uprooting, regeneration and renewal are recurring themes in his work.

A 2014 graduate of Saint-Martin School in London and Beaux-arts in Paris, he was one of the emerging figures at FIAC 2016. He has exhibited at the Collège des Bernardins in 2016, the Fondation d'entreprise Ricard in 2018, the Centre Pompidou in 2019, the Carré d'art (Nîmes, 2020), the Museum of Contemporary Art in Antwerp (2022) and participated in the 16th Lyon Biennial of Contemporary Art (2022), among others. He is the recipient of the Prix Marcel Duchamp 2023.
