Entitled Lost Strange Things: On not finding home, this exhibition brings together the culmination of Tanya Traboulsi’s photographic and artistic research into the question of home, delving in the terrain of nostalgia and belonging through photography. Born in Austria, Traboulsi grew up living between Lebanon and Austria, where she continues to split her time. This recent body of work has grown from more than two years of photographing people, landscapes, cityscapes as well as objects and interiors in both countries. The images illustrate the different facets that represent, or rather question, the elusive notion of home while simultaneously observing its affiliation to time, space, people and memory.
The exhibition contains a series of 12 (100 x100cm) photographs, accompanied by a slide projection as well as a selection of objects, family photos and documents culled from the artist’s personal collection.
Also coinciding with the opening of the exhibition is the release of Traboulsi’s first monograph of the same title. The book is published by Triton and designed by Beirut-based Studio Safar.
