A visual artist, he holds a baccalaureate degree in Sculpture from the Michaelis School of Fine Art of the University of Cape Town, South Africa, 2012. His collaborative artistic practice is based on dialogue and exchange with others.
His situational creations attempt to translate orally-transmitted stories from different communities into artistic interventions and installations, often involving sculptures and site-specific work, and inviting spectators to participate and thus complement them.
His addressing of subjects such as the forced removals during Apartheid and the role of Islam in resisting that regime attest to the artist’s involvement with a locally active social practice that strives for universal reach nonetheless.
His work has been exhibited at the 56th Venice Biennale, Italy (2015); New Church Museum, Cape Town, South Africa (2014); Goodman Gallery, Johannesburg, South Africa (2013 and 2014); Centre for African Studies Gallery, Cape Town (2013); and others. Haroon Gunn-Salie lives and works between...Cape Town and Johannesburg.
