| LIVE IN CONVERSATION
In conversation with Koffler Gallery curator Mona Filip, multidisciplinary artist 2Fik discusses his artistic process, in addition to the themes & ideas explored in his Koffler Gallery exhibition His and Other Stories. Assuming the multiple roles of artistic director, photographer, and performer, 2Fik stages elaborate tableaux that often re-enact familiar compositions derived from famous paintings. Toying with reality, his constructed images destabilize the viewer’s assumed points of reference, playfully orchestrating scenes that comment thoughtfully on current society.
2FIK | Born in Paris to a Moroccan Muslim family, 2Fik moved to Montréal in 2003. His encounter with the city’s multicultural environment inspired him to examine issues of identity & its socio-political ramifications. Drawn out of this diverse backdrop, the recurring characters featured in his photographs are all interconnected & stem from the artist’s life experiences & personality.
