Ibrahim Cissé

Ibrahim Cissé’s artistic practice is grounded in his early yet expanding musings with poetry and prose. Embracing this stance and outlook to decipher the world, Cissé’s work accounts for the points of conflicts between the material, ethereal and transient nature of the diasporic and human experience.

Cissé identifies with the form of documentary to recall or co-create narratives of his time and surroundings, the universal traits, virtues and failures that orchestrate and bond the will of all living matters. His experiments oscillate between visual art, writing and performance, borrowing from fiction to enhance the social and historical framings of his encounters.
