Conceived as a “narrative machine,” the exhibition Come, come, come of age, the artist’s first solo institutional exhibition in France, presents a sonic-sculptural installation. Kiswanson embarks on a new series of sculptures for the show, which create a scenography for a sound work: poems in the form of a deconstructed interview that unfolds between the artist and a child. Their voices proffer fragmented reflections on questions of desire, corporality, birth, cycles of life-and-death, coming of age, and the construction of identity.
