Hiwa K: Do you remember what you are burning?
Do you remember what you are burning? will be the first solo museum exhibition by Iraqi-Kurdish artist Hiwa K in Ireland.
Employing humour and drawing on familial anecdotes and personal experiences, the work of Hiwa K explores ideas of estrangement, collectively, histories of neoliberalism and the long shadow of the multiple conflicts waged on and in Iraq – particularly in his home city of Sulaymaniyah.
Hiwa K: Do you remember what you are burning? is conceived as a three-venue collaboration by Jameel Arts Centre, Dubai with Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin, The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Toronto and the artist Hiwa K.
Hiwa K (b. 1975) Lives and works between Sulaymaniyah, Iraqi Kurdistan, and Berlin, Germany. Working across video, performance and installation, Hiwa’s work draws from his personal experiences and family anecdotes with observations on daily encounters and occurrences.
