Walid Siti

London-based Kurdish-Iraqi artist Walid Siti’s (b.1954) first monograph presents an oeuvre that spans over 40 years and traverses the complex terrains of memory and loss, landscape and architecture, as well as issues of identity and belonging. In his site-specific installations, paintings, sculptures and drawings Siti draws on his heritage in relation to current politics in the Middle East. In his work he evokes a set of metaphors and associations that poetically, yet forcefully, address the ongoing changes and challenges in the Middle East. Siti’s work was exhibited internationally, e.g. at Martin Gropius Bau, Berlin, at L'Institut des Cultures d'Islam, Paris, at the Sharjah Biennial, and three times at the Venice Biennale. It is included in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the British Museum, the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, the World Bank, Washington DC, among others.
