About Hans Hamid Rasmussen
Hans Hamid Rasmussen was born in 1963 in Algeria. He currently lives and works in Oslo (Norway).
The Norwegian-Algerian artist refers to his artistic project as an “homage to the hybrid”, and in his embroideries he tries to give form to the experience of ruptures in language. Rasmussen was born in Alger 1963, and French was his mother tongue. At the age of 7 he moved with his family to Norway, and he soon lost his first language. His work explores intercultural dilemmas and the possibility to express both the introvert and silent language he knew from Alger as well as the extravert language he knows from his upbringing in Norway.
Hans Hamid Rasmussen is represented by Martin Asbæk Gallery.
