In the Kurdish language, the word "hiwa" means hope. The exhibition will showcase works from Hiwa K, an Iraqi-Kurd who found political asylum in Europe almost 20 years ago and today is considered one of the leading contemporary artists in the world. His unique artistic tactics are based on creating forms using the practices of everyday life and childhood memories while combining them with autobiographical elements with things he overhears from fictional stories. The exhibition, constructed in relation to the architecture of Zachęta, gives the viewer an insight into the artist’s practices and enables them to experience its spatial aspects.
