Kisito Assangni was born in Lomé (Togo) and currently lives between London, Paris and Lomé.
His artworks primarily question post-globalisation impact and psychogeography, a concept defined in 1955 by the French writer and situationist Guy Debord.
Moving lucidly between curatorial process, video, photography and drawing, Assangni's practice is underpinned by an acute and persistent awarness of personal responsability for a common identity.
His projects have been shown internationally, including the ICA - Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; Arnot Art Museum, New York; Musée des Arts Derniers, Paris; Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; National Center for Contemporary Arts, Moscow; Pori Art Museum, Pori, Finland; Torrance Art Museum, California, USA; Museo ExTeresa Arte Actual, Mexico City among others.
Kisito is the Founder/Curator of Time is Love Screening and [SFIP] Project - Still Fighting Ignorance & Intellectual Perfidy.
