Artist in residence: Lynn Kodeih

Born in Lebanon in 1982, Lynn Kodeih lives and works in Beirut. In her work, she uses video and photography as well as the raw body of the performer, as she experiments with new media. 

She acted in and directed several performances including Coma, Hamlet Machine, Regrets of the Statue Man, and The Invisible City. 

Lynn is fascinated by faces, obliteration, narration and testimony. In her installations Triptych – I am the Martyr #187 and Variations on an Icon, she reflects on monuments and martyrdom conceptualizing the human body, a task she attempts to pursue in 160 Feet Under Pure Blue Sea which she will present in Makan.
