Les Artistes

"Struggle(s)" april - june 2012

Born in 1978 in Lebanon. Lives and works between Beirut and Amsterdam.

Her oeuvre is multidisciplinary, oscillating between video, installation, writing, photography and painting. Al Solh's work can be described as an inner conflict with social environments which impose national, cultural and religious identity. In that sense it is a reflection on the social and religious tensions in the country of her birth, Lebanon, which has undergone several civil wars and still occupies a sensitive position in the present eruptions in the Middle East. Her approach is not documentary but fictional, even fantastic. She deals with dramatic situations using irony and makes parallels between socio-political issues and aesthetics.
