galerie anne barrault

Born in Lebanon in 1983
Lives and works between in Beirut and Paris

Her work takes as a departure point the moment when one becomes estranged from his surroundings. The artist explores the shape of the distance that now separates them, and attempts to make it visible. A process of Artificial Nostalgia is developed, through which strange locations, familiar to the artist, are assembled, and faraway horizons reactivated, to exist in the present. Pairs are created, in which the elements, forced to cohabitate, constantly long to part, emitting a tension as intense as imperceptible. The nature of the tied links is questioned, their possible persistence, or their inevitable ephemerality. Mechanisms are activated and disseminated in the space, silent clocks which follow different speeds to complete one rotation: one day, one month, or eternity. A world is constructed, out of works which function like mythological objects. It is meant to be inhabited.

Stéphanie Saadé graduated in Fine Arts from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris and attended a post-graduate program at the China Academy of Arts, Hangzhou. She was an artist in residence at the Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht (2014/2015), and the Cité Internationale des arts of Paris (2015).

Her work has been exhibited recently at Home Works 7, Beirut / La Traverse, Centre d’Art Contemporain d’Alfortville, France / MuHKA, Antwerp / Marres, house for contemporary culture, Maastricht / La Conservera, Centro de Arte Contemporaneo, Murcia, Spain / Mosaic Rooms, London / New Positions, Art Cologne / Van Eyck, Maastricht / Le 59e Salon de Montrouge, France / Beirut Art Center, Beirut / Beirut Exhibition Center, Beirut / A.M. Qattan Foundation, Ramallah / Qalandyia International Biennial, Palestine.
