Jean-Pierre Khazem and Misi Park: reconstructing identity
For the last fifteen years, artist Jean-Pierre Khazem has played a major role in contemporary art.
He has been using multiple media to question identity, its definition and its representation. From photography and sculpture to performance and film, the variety of his work is united by the fundamental issues with which they deal: geographical, bodily, personal existence.
His long-time collaboration with Misi Park has led him to expand the borders of dream within art itself, and to connect real characters with invented figures.
He ceaselessly questions the construction of our identity through the use of masks; the exposure of the naked body; the disconnection between specific characters and their context.
His work has been exhibited all over the world: in Paris, at Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin; in Stockholm, at Färgfabriken; in New York, at Sperone Westwater Gallery and Deitch Projects; in Tokyo.
It is included in numerous collections, such as the Rubell Family Collection in Miami.
His collaborations outside of the art world include a video clip for Björk and photo stories for leading international publications such as W, Arena Homme +, Details, Esquire…
