Lamia Joreige

Visual Artist, filmmaker & Co-founder & Co-director of Beirut Art Center

Born in Lebanon in 1972, Lamia Joreige is a visual artist and filmmaker who lives and works in Beirut. She uses archival documents and fictitious elements to reflect on the relation between individual stories and collective History. She explores the possibilities of representation of the Lebanese wars and their aftermath, and Beirut, a city at the center of her imagery. Her work is essentially on Time, the recordings of its trace and its effects on us. She presented her work in many exhibitions, among which were: Sharjah Biennial 9 and 11, UAE, 2009 and 2013; Records for Uncertain Times, (solo) Art Factum Gallery, Beirut, 2013; 6 Lines of Flight, SF MOMA, San Francisco, 2012; Tate Modern (Permanent Collection), London, 2011-2012; Arab Express, Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, 2012; Told Untold Retold, MATHAF, Doha, 2010; Archive Fever, International Center of Photography, New York, 2008; Foreword (Lebanese Pavilion), 52nd Venice Biennale, 2007; Out of Beirut, Modern Art Oxford, U.K., 2005; Ici et peut être ailleurs, (solo) Nicéphore Niépce Museum, France, 2003; and DisOrientation, House of World Cultures, Berlin, 2003.
