New World/Nouveau Monde (Beirut)
Workshop and Curator – Halida Boughriet
“New World/Nouveau Monde” presents the works of 5 previous finalists of the Byblos Bank Award: Myriam Boulos, Ghaleb Cabbabé, Tarek Haddad, Lama Mattar, and Carmen Yahchouchy. This initiative, which is part of the Byblos Bank Award’s 5th Anniversary celebrations, is the result of a special workshop organized in July 2016 by Byblos Bank and BEIRUT ART FAIR, and given by Franco-Algerian artist Halida Boughriet. This five-day workshop was open for all previous finalists of the Byblos Bank Award, and the organizers selected the five participating artists based on submitted portfolios. Participants had the opportunity to experiment with new artistic techniques with the aim of contributing to the plurality of interpretation and its different possibilities, exploring the notion of fracture in order to generate a new world and bring out the inexpressible, the indescribable. This exhibition is a response to the breaches and wounds afflicting our contemporary world.

Conflicts and the scars they leave form the common thread in Boughriets work and it is in this context she invites us to a performance placed in the urban setting of Brussel.
Her performance Psychogéography focuses on the immigration problem, a large-scaled phenomenon that still until this date leads to an incoherent reception policy. Boughriet will disturb the public space carrying plastic bags containing a deafening soundtrack that tells the stories of people in exile in resonance with poetic texts that take us on a journey through a chaotic landscape. This performance will find place along a route mapped by the artist and will be filmed
