Excellente exposition d'Alia FARID | Kunsthalle Basel

exposition d'Alia Farid, Kunsthalle de Basel

Alia Farid (1985) contemplates colonial histories, cultural rituals, and the social dimension of architecture. For her first institutional presentation in Switzerland, the Kuwaiti Puerto Rican artist crafts a monumental installation of new work, bringing disparate sites in relation to each other so as to imagine a transregionalism that belies national boundaries drawn on land. 

Farid presents three bodies of new work: a series of monumental sculptures that impos- ingly stand, lined up, one after the other, in the main space, as well as a sound piece and a display of found textile harnesses to be encountered in the adjacent rooms. With a spareness that belies the complexity of the histories that she probes, the artist follows the trails of water as a political agent in the Arab region.
