Born 1986 in Ghazieh, Lebanon.

Chafa Ghaddar’s frescoes explore the paradoxes of a medium that is both vulnerable and longlasting. While developing her artisanal savoirfaire, she experiments extensively with age-old techniques and natural and traditional materials. By folding these canvases and arranging them on the floor, the artist introduces new tensions between painting and sculpture, figuration and abstraction. Ghaddar’s creations, produced after a long process of soaking up the exhibition venues, initiate reflections on the fragmentation of time and space by revealing, through the overlaying of plaster and fabric, a myriad of narratives.

Also on view at Lugdunum - Musée et théâtres romains.
