This first book by Tarik Kiswanson brings together two poems: two polyphonic narratives that explore the notions of desire, plural identities, borders and métissage.

The first one, composed as an interview between the artist and his alter ego, a pre-adolescent boy who gives his name to the poem, Vadim. This exchange is then split, multiplied and conceptually hybridized in As Deep as I Could Remember, As Far as I Could See. The accumulation of experiences and voices reflects a human condition in perpetual movement, and offers a new weave of universal history and the construction of our individuality.

The poems are followed by an essay written by Jesi Khadivi, curator and writer which highlights the artist’s conceptual strategies of textual and sculptural weaving.
