The artist maintains and builds upon what he refers to ‘visual mythos,’ consisting of past drawings, paintings, and photographs. Bahzad observes how the works supplement and speak to each other as a starting point to explore themes of individuality and universality.

Yousef Bahzad has exhibited work at Fire Station, Doha, Qatar, and ITSLIQUID Group, Venice, among others.

Aslan Goisum

Aslan Goisum tends to mine memory–collective and personal, political and cultural–for clues about colonial realities, how they have been endured and how they might be undone. Identities come into play in his work, as embodied effects of violence perpetrated or unfreedom suffered but also as possible openings, new beginnings. So far, his prime artistic tools have been the moving image, sculptural installation and various paper-based techniques.

Aslan Goisum has exhibited work at Museum of Contemporary Art, Antwerp; Stedeljik Museum, Amsterdam; and Kohta, Helsinki, among others.
