Dorota Gawęda, Eglė Kulbokaitė Agatha Valkyrie Ice: FREEPORTS, WHO ARE YOU? SALTS, Birsfelden

Alter ego, collective identity, meta-artist, improved or lessen versions of oneself: if the fictional artist has often served as a strategy to convey political resistance, artists have never stopped mediating their own image. Today, publicly concealing one’s identity—a real paradox— seems to emphasise that we live in an environment overshadowed by austerity and fear. In this context, a need to test what is often perceived as an “unstable” reality has emerged. Who are you? gathers artists exploring identity under fictional ones, in a group exhibition including works by Olivier Castel, Dorota Gaweda and Eglé Kulbokaité, Selina Grüter and Michele Graf, Than Hussein Clark and Martin Soto Climent.
