Hassan Sharif: From Daily Experiences to Collective Stories

11.03.2020 - 09.05.2020
Opening Wednesday 11.03.2020 from 4 - 8 pm

Hassan Sharif: From Daily Experiences To Collective Stories, the artist's fourth solo exhibition at the gallery, highlights the recurrent passages happening in his work between the public and private spheres, the political and the intimate, the collective and the individual, between great universal stories and everyday gestures.

Since the late 1970s, Hassan Sharif opened a space in which the imagination, the subjective and the individual resisted the formatted thinking of an increasingly consumerist society. In his work, he questioned very early on the need for new forms of individualism while inviting everyone to take interest in others, in their modes of operating and their knowledge. Humanist on the fringes of different cultures, his work is always deployed with modernity and accuracy.
