Untitled – Lost 7

Pencil, soft pastel, sanguine.
22 x 15 cm

Christine Safatly explores in her work how materiality can be deployed to echo collective experiences and struggles in Lebanon. Her study of socio-political, environmental, and corporeal conditions is rooted in her use of biological and inorganic elements in sculpture and drawing. In Lost in the Right Direction, she presents works from her ongoing series There’s No Difference Between Ketchup and Ripe Tomatoes (2019–). She creates drawings and multimedia assemblages with disparate materials - such as charcoal, pastel, acrylic, oil paint, latex, sugar, salt, metal, nails, wire, fabric, and cardboard - to explore gendered corporeality, childhood memories, and everyday encounters with oppressive systems. The series is at once well researched and organized, while being strongly intuitive and chaotic
