Tripoli, Lebanon in September 1983 in a
family which was much more interested in sciences than art.
Being the third of two brothers and two
sisters, she chose to become an artist. at the age of 18 she entered the IBA
(Institut Des Beaux Arts) in Tripoli, where she was a revolutionary student who continuously searched for the “new”,
the”different”:an attitude which wasn’t that much sympathised by the Academic
system at that time..however, despite these circumstances she was the first of
her generation during all the four years of learning, getting a Diploma of High
Studies in Fine Arts in (2005).
she moved to Beirut and continued her Masters in Plastic Arts in ALBA,Sin el
Fil taking video art as Major project.
In 2015 she moved to Berlin Germany where she is actually living , doing Masters Studies in Art in Context at the UDK Berlin
uprising artist I keep searching and curiously
discovering the media, languages that can correspond the most with what I would
like to say considering my position as :
1- an artist
of the current era (including all artistic languages /mediums of the XXI st
Lebanese artist, living in Lebanon including (all the current sociopolitical
circumstances that shape the country and the surrounding…),
try through art to embody my lived experiences on the human and social levels at
I seek to
explore the dimensions of “Being” that can fulfill my spirit and answer my
limitless philosophical questions about Life, Existence, humanity…
social level: and on the way of Josef Beuys, I believe in the relevant
relationship between art and society…trying to dissolve the limits between
Lebanon and specifically in Tripoli, north Lebanon including the religious sociopolitical composition of the place, I try through art
to evoke questions concerning this context which witnessed and is still
witnessing conflicts that ended by a civil war that we still hear its echoes till the current times in Tripoli..
art can’t stay aside from its surrounding, I can’t subtract myself from the
context of time/place in which I live especially this current time that is a
critical and full of chaos and change.
as an artist I see I should play a
certain role reflecting the lived context and I believe in the power of
art as described by the romantic poet Percy
Bysshe Shelley: “Art is the power that transforms the world”.
