    Hammana Artist House and British Council Lebanon are pleased to invite you to “Stillness in the Fall”, a photography exhibition by Collectif 1200.

    The year 2019 had a turbulent ending for Lebanon; what started as a hopeful revolution in October was hindered by the crumbling of the political and economic mesh, then came the pandemic in 2020, which put life on hold, and later the devastating explosion in the Port of Beirut.

    Persisting to create during that time became at once very difficult yet evermore essential.


    11 photographers held regular meetings at Hammana Artist House in 2020 and 2021, which transformed into a support system for each other in order not to despair during the crises, in order to encourage each other, to persevere and continue creating.


    Working together allowed them to not only reflect on the situation, but to also step back and grasp all that was happening.

    “Stillness in the Fall” is the result of 2 years of ongoing and unfinished conversations between 11 artists using the medium to reflect on their surroundings and their daily lives. Diverse subjects such as the intimate and the sociopolitical, all come together as an amalgamation of experiences to enrich a single holistic and global story they are trying to tell; that of an ongoing loss, struggle, resistance, hope, love, change, stillness, death and life in Lebanon.

    Collectif 1200 is one of 10 visual artists and artist collectives selected to partake in the CATAPULT.visual’arts programme, a pilot initiative launched by British Council Lebanon's Arts and Culture department.
