Nada Sehnaoui's labour-intensive artistic practice hinges predominantly on repetition, underlining the importance of time and process inherent to the act of remembering or forgetting. In doing so, she recalls and reiterates personal and collective acts of resilience that is symbolic of war, political instability and crisis. This exhibition includes pieces of Sehnaoui's iconic series Peindre L'Orient Le Jour (1999) that are exhibited for the first time outside Lebanon.
