Relics

Relics represent a visual exploration into the processes of dissemination and preservation concerning found materials and archival pictures. It focuses on the inherent capacity of Photography to generate vernacular imagery and narratives that can alter Reality and border with the mythical. Beirut, torn between its traumatic past and its race for modernity, embodies the metaphor of the 'image-ruin'. The scars of the aftermath on buildings, the inhabitants and their traces all revive a moment that collapsed, was hidden, buried. It is these glimpses and their persistence I try to grasp, investigating their aura, the mystical aspect of their circulation - in term of time and heritage- a process initiated with the manipulation, re-organization of found photographs, to summon new stories.
