Lauréate cette année du Frieze Artist Award, cette artiste canadienne a affirmé à travers son travail un regard singulier voire engagé, particulièrement influencé par les sciences humaines.

Surface Tensions extends her researchs started during her art-residency at ArtPace in San Antonio (Texas, US). Kapwani Kiwanga will present a set of works shown for the first time in France and playing on the ambivalence between visible and imperceptible, revealing and obscuring. The works will question the concept of control by using materials which affect the act of looking but also movement. The artist examines the mutations of technology at the crossroads of history and the present.
