VIDEO ART PROGRAM

"THE SENSITIVE SEA"

The video art program “The Sensitive Sea” is born out of a visual dialogue of the Lebanese and Western scenes around a common theme, the Sea, a bridge linking two cultures across the Mediterranean.

The Sea has lured artists since Antiquity: between terror and fascination, it is simultaneously a vehicle for anxieties and hopes. The sea, and water more generally, are in both Western and Oriental literature tightly linked to ideas of memory and metamorphosis.

The selected artists propose a reflection around the multiple stakes carried by the Sea, be they political, economic or cultural. “The Sensitive Sea” highlights the sea as a contemporary artistic motif, as well as the many ways to approach it.
