Bokja / Artistic Interventions
As a commemoration of the 50th anniversary for Phoenicia Hotel, we concocted a cartographical installation inspired by Beirut’s pre-war glory days. The map of Lebanon is hung as a punching bag, raw and vulnerable and evokes a sentimental attachment to Lebanon’s enduring cultural icons.
The piece turns a critical eye towards our collective selective memories and our nostalgic yearning for the good old times, while always expressing optimistic aspirations for the future.
