Submission to #aishtibythesea competition, concept and photomontage by roula sorour, fashion design by Blanka Matragi[/caption]
Beirut is amazing! Despite its tiny size, galleries and art spaces keep mushrooming left right and center. The latest addition will be the Aishti Foundation designed by David Adjave.
Aishti launched a #aishtibythesea competition to promote it. I immediately jumped to the occasion and decided to collaborate with the very talented Blanca Matragi by creating these photomontages. I took inspiration from Beirut , from Aishti’s campaign and from my last visit to the beirut national museum . The first submission is very playful and as the inspiration is about the sea i chose phoenician artifacts. I also used a photo of soap bubbles taken at the science museum in London. For those who have kids this is a show not to be missed! The second is inspired by the lovely lebanese spirit of positivity and resilience especially during difficult times including the present trash crisis. Lebanese are keeping their fingers crossed for politicians to come to an agreement to solve the issue. The whole country is threatened to disappear under loads of trash including the beautiful architecture designed by David Adjave!! The third was my Gatekeeper!
IF you want my frank opinion we should have won! But one never knows what goes inside the brains of jury members.
