artistic project

The Selection Committee, composed of renowned international experts chose Mounira Al Solh for “her ability to tackle poignant themes, focusing on migration and the ongoing witnessing of war and trauma with humor and a poetic approach, using a diverse range of artistic mediums: painting, drawing, embroidery, video, music, performance, and new technologies. The juxtaposition of these elements creates immersive and multisensory worlds, conveying a deep social engagement.


Her art is narrative, powerful and expressive, and brings together a diversity of materials, oral stories, forms and gestures. The questions raised by her work will significantly resonate with the issues of our time.”


The Pavilion’s scenography has been entrusted to the architect Karim Bekdache.


The Lebanese Pavilion is located in La Sala di Artillery, inside the Arsenale, one of the two main venues of La Biennale di Venezia
