It is hosted by the Fundació Antoni Tàpies, which organises it in collaboration with the Han Nefkens Foundation.
Aziz Hazara is an interdisciplinary artist born in Wardak, Afghanistan, in 1992, who lives and works between his native country and Ghent, Belgium. A grant awarded by the Han Nefkens Foundation lit now allows him to present his works for the first time in a solo exhibition, and he does so at the Fundació Antoni Tàpies until the 24th of January next year. The exhibition is called The Restless Echo of Tomorrow,, and visitors will find Hazara's recent video artworks produced by the Han Nefkens Foundation. Among these are Bow Echo, a video installation of zinc channels that was already shown at the Biennial of Sydney in 2020.
Thematically, the Afghan addresses issues of identity, memory, archiving, conflict, surveillance and migration in the context of power relations, geopolitics and the Panopticon. And it does so using photography, video, sound, programming language and multimedia and text installations. SAME Hazara explains about sume Artwork: "The visual exploration of my work is deeply intertwined with geopolitics and the endless conflict that ravages my native Afghanistan. However, the importance of these issues goes beyond geographical specificities and appeals to a contemporary situation that is shared on a global scale".
The exhibition is curated by Suena Stepanyan and Hilde Teerlinck. If you would like to know more about the exhibition, click here.
