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.
Stories of the Forest
“I met with many of the inhabitants of Miziara – those of all ages – and asked them to tell a story about Miziara’s forest: something that happened there, something they experienced or heard of. What interests me in this intergenerational dynamic is how the age affects the story. Kids who are in the age of discovery are always inventing stories while seniors talk from experience, distance and witnessing the change. As for the adults they will deliver their personal interpretation of the reality. All interviews were recorded in order to produce an audio piece, a sort of Memory of the Forest. This work is a collective testimony, a mosaic that shows multiple points of view on the same reality with different narrative styles to be transmitted to the new generation.”
