Aslan Goisum. Prism
Lund Art Gallery 10 February – 12 May 2024

The internationally active Berlin-based artist Aslan Goisum was born in Grozny, Chechnya, in 1991 and educated in Moscow, Ghent and Amsterdam. The exhibition introduces his incisive practice in the current global context of change and upheaval. 'Prism' is Goisum's first major exhibition in Sweden.

Four new works have been commissioned. Prism captures a young male performer's body in a large prismatic video sculpture. Star, Table and Wheel are sculptural installations using basic geometric shapes to articulate Goisum's observations of the continued prominence of imperial visual codes in northern Eurasia. Spear (2023–24) is an installation with books subjected to scalpel cuts. Object (2022) consists of seven fence-like steel sculptures, triggered by Goisum's visit to a cemetery in Kazakhstan. In addition the videos Touch (2023) and Scythian Journey (2019) are shown, along with two installations of salvaged street signs from Grozny: Numbers (2015) and Fearsome (2011–ongoing).

Goisum studied both architecture and visual art, and he is known for video installations, sculptures and works on and with paper. These artistic formats have all been incorporated into the exhibition, in more or less hybridised form.

Guest curator: Anders Kreuger
