And we made from water every living thing
"It is a research to perceive the behavior of water, its performance and its characters that gains form from its surroundings thus changing it. This is how my artistic interventions in the city of Jezzine try to represent the vitality of its water, which nourish the arteries of its life. My interventions alter in their behavior, characters and performance, resist the frames of references, commit sins and challenge the establishment, appear and disappear, leave no trace when they return by presidential decree.
My interventions are an open-invitation to read the relationship of a citizen with his city, to form another perspective and enhance the spirit of responsibility, to preserve the social and environmental diversity. They may inspire individuals and institutions with ideas on how to develop the possibilities of a city and its impressive landscapes. These projects seek to involve people in the question of the role of art in society and what kind of art can emerge from or respond to its «needs»?"
