Si la matière pouvait parler, Hala Mouzannar


Du 12/10/2023 à 17:00 jusqu'au 18/11/2023 à 17:00

Time slows in the pools of surface sheen, in neat and tiny crackles, in foil relief.


The evidence of movement and the pace of that movement are embedded within each painting, a material time of reaction. Add one material to another and see how it acts, how it reacts with another, under, beside, on top.


The knowledge of material is experiential, the many compounds understood through an accretive, processual understanding. Unexpected reactions exist in a tension with experience, the knowledge of what one thing will do when placed in relation with another. There is always an element of chance in life, on or off the canvas, and there is always experience, knowledge, practice. Hala Mouzannar takes both, expanding and ushering these realities onto the stage and putting them under lights. They shine there, the chances, the experiences. The eye moves again in the pools.


Born in Beirut in 1968, Hala Mouzannar came to the world of art after decades of experience in the creative industry. She worked as a media planner for Leo Burnett Beirut, as a media executive for Future Television, and as a director of acquisitions for Aïzone fashion department store. In 2005, she co-founded Madame Rêve, a costume jewelry company and store where she also worked as a creative stylist. She shifted to a painting practice in 2015. She holds a BA in Business Administration from the American University of Beirut (1989). She also earned, in 2021, an MFA in Visual Arts from Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts (ALBA) in Beirut. Her solo exhibitions include La Chasse aux Papillons in Beirut at Agial Art Gallery and an exhibition in London. Her group exhibitions include Arthaus Gallery, Beirut Art Center, Maintain, La Maison Abandonnée and Green Cedars in Beirut.
