Overview participating exhibitions
After the 2006 war, Lebanon's social and political climate was unstable. Public space – from the media to the street – was permeated by fear and paranoia. For a generation of Beirut's young residents, the night became the ultimate free space. They met one another during decadent underground parties, where everything revolved around beauty, designer clothes and sex appeal. But in Gregory Buchakjian's photos the underlying anxiety and violence is still palpable.
Gregory Buchakjian (Lebanon, 1971) uses different media to lay bare the city: installations, animation and photography. He studied at the Sorbonne in Paris, and writes essays and criticism on modern and contemporary Lebanese art. He is connected with the Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts and the new Lebanese Museum of Vine and Wine.
