Ieva Saudargaitė Douaihi

Ieva Saudargaitė Douaihi (b.1988) Ieva Saudargaitė Douaihi (b.1988) is a Lithuanian-Lebanese photographer and artist based in Beirut. She grew up between Lithuania, the United Arab Emirates, and Lebanon, and studied Architecture at the Lebanese American University in Byblos and the École Spéciale d’Architecture in Paris. Informed by her background in architecture, her artistic practice spans varied media. Through materiality, sequencing, choice of medium or location, her work explores how seemingly mundane materials, gestures, artefacts, and scenes engage with the status quo. In 2021, she received both the Boghossian Foundation Award for Photography and the ADPP Mentorship Award. She
also co-founded Digital Fountain, an online photography platform. In 2017, she collaborated with architect and designer Roula Salamoun on the multi-sensory installation Nationmetrix, for which they received the 2019 Arte Laguna ARS Prize. Her work has been exhibited internationally at the Institut du Monde Arabe, Paris, France (2019 and 2021); the Middle East Institute in Washington, US (2020); the Lebanese Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale, Italy (2019); and Mediterranea 18, Tirana, Albania (2018). She has additionally shown work at various spaces in Beirut, including La Vitrine (2020); Beit Beirut (2020 and 2019); Sursock Museum (2019); Beirut Art Center (2018); and Beirut Art Fair (2018 and 2019). Her first monograph, Beirut, Naked City (Medawar Editions) was published in 2019.
