Stephanie Saadé


In her work, Stéphanie Saadé (b. 1983, Lebanon) addresses subjects like memory and individual experience of time, scale and place. She affects objects and photographs in a subtle way, measuring terms of growth or decrease, articulated by time, weathering and other natural phenomena. Through a language of suggestion she shares clues, signs, imageless and occasionally silent trails with us, which interact like the words of a single sentence. It is for the viewer to decipher them, as would an archaeologist faced with traces, fossils, and fragments. Playing with poetics and metaphors based on stories, history and personal experiences, Stéphanie Saadé finds a delicate balance between what is fleeting and what is tangible.
