Binelde Hyrcan (b. 1983) is a multidisciplinary artist working across painting, drawing, sculpture, design, film, performance and installation. His work often addresses the absurdity represented by political and social customs and attitudes, critiquing structures of power and human vanity.
Using imagination and dreaming as methods of endurance and overcoming, his configurations parody the constructs of power, poverty, migration and inequality, with delicately negotiated humor, reflecting both his confrontation of the country’s troubling realities and relations with the outside world and enjoyment of the creative process. A humanist, his work also reflects intimate aspects of his life’s journey on this earth.
Hyrcan has exhibited at Museo del Risorgimento, Palazzo Morando, Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin, Centre Pompidou, Paris, the Angolan Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale and The Jewish Museum, NY, among others.
