My 12 channel installation, Perpetuum Mobile is part of the Sounding The Neighbors exhibition that opened at the amazing Maxxi Museum, designed by Zaha Hadid, in Rome. The exhibition is curated by Hou Hanru and Giulia Ferracci and will last until May 2018.

The exhibition that includes 36 artists, architects, filmmakers, musicians, dancers, researchers and activists from Beirut is described as the "story of a city, a laboratory of resistance, artistic innovation and hope seen through over 100 works".

This new edition of Perpetuum Mobile is installed on the plaza of the museum and is sponsored by Bose.

Perpetuum Mobile in Beit Beirut

The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture- AFAC celebrates its 10th anniversary with a two-week long program that includes exhibitions and screenings. I'm happy that Perpetuum Mobile, funded by AFAC in 2014 is part of the selected works on display!

The 12 channel installation will be exhibited in Beit Beirut, located on the former "green line": Previously known as the Yellow House, Beit Beirut was a forward control post and sniper base during the civil war. It is now restored and turned into a museum.

Perpetuum Mobile receives AFAC grant

Very happy that my latest project, Perpetuum Mobile has just been selected by the AFAC committee jury of this year to receive a production grant!  

Perpetuum Mobile is a newly commissioned 12 channel sound installation that will be exhibited at the SMBA Stedelijk Museum of Amsterdam. The work is part of a group exhibition titled "This Is The Time. And This Is The Record Of The Time".

The curators, Nat Muller and Angela Harutyunyan have taken their cue from Laurie Anderson’s ominous 1982 song “From the Air” where she describes the duration between becoming conscious that the plane will crash and its actual impact.     The show proposes to critically question our relationship to time, as well as our relationship to the mechanisms of recording time, particularly in moments of crisis or other transformative contexts.  

The exhibition opens on September 13th 2014 and will travel to Beirut in 2015.
