160 Feet Under Pure Blue Sea A video-performance by Lynn Kodeih

September 12, 2011 - 7:30pm


"I have always imagined the sea full of cadavers.

I try to capture the face of my father, making him answer the questions he refused to respond to when I was a child. But my father loses his face and becomes all those people who have disappeared and have lost their bodies. They haunt the remaining traces of his face, they tell their stories, as if my father was in a perpetual transformation, from a man to another, and then another."

There are no actors: All the people in this work do (have) exist(ed).

160 Feet Under Pure Blue Sea was shown for the first time at the Beirut Art Center in the framework of Exposure 2010.

The duration of the performance is 35 minutes.
