Notions of rootlessness, regeneration and renewal are central themes in Tarik Kiswanson’s work. Defying the laws of gravity, his installation consists of furniture and old display cabinets once used in the former natural history museum suspended from the ceiling of this disused hall. In addition to the old furniture, cocoon shaped sculptures titled Nest hover in the space. Calling to mind the chrysalises once displayed in the cabinets, they appear as levitating bodies. Through this installation, redolent of uprooting, Tarik Kiswanson continues to reflect on the sense of floating in uncertainty that defines our transient times.
