TAP's Database of Public Art Practices in Lebanon
Our Database of Public Art Practices is an on-going research project archiving public art interventions that have taken place in Lebanon from 1980 to present day.
True stars of archaeology displayed in Baalbek act as ghostly copies of the Ashanti doll from Ghana, Venus of Willendorf, Tlaloc statue, Mumuye statue, Chimú statue, Moaï and cycladic idols. Icons of disappeared civilisations, these interpretations of famous archaeological gures question our constant relationship to time, history, to the production and reproduction of works of art. These sculptures manually reproduced in polystyrene are based on photographs, reduced or enlarged, and were subsequently placed in the darkness of a grotto and were transformed by the atmospheric conditions, letting the environment influence and interact with their nature.
