Lawen wasel? Ahmad Ghaddar


Du 20/01/2022 à 17:00 jusqu'au 10/02/2022 à 17:00

Artlab, in partnership with The British Council Lebanon through CATAPULT.visual'arts, is glad to invite you to Ahmad Ghaddar's solo exhibition.

 “Lawen wasel?” A question raised by an approaching van. A pause of uncertainty. Where was I really going?

I already found the van as a visually captivating space, so I started sketching it in hopes of finding some answers. I initially sketched the whole van but I ended up focusing on the rearview mirror. Different thoughts and morals were physically manifested as decorative ornaments that hung on those mirrors. Those reflected the driver’s character, and since I was lacking a father figure in my life, I searched for the person I ought to be in those ornaments and reflections in hopes of replacing what I was not given. I later understood that my interest was only there to remind me of some forgotten memories I had with my father when I rode in his van and looked at him in the rearview mirror. What started as a journey of an unusual interest ended up in soul searching? This makes me think of all the stories other people might have experienced like I did, so tell me, Lawen wasel?
 The exhibition runs until 10th of February.

 Opening times: Tue-Sat from 11am to 3pm and 3pm to 7pm.
