The Second Space by Stéphanie Saadé
Dates: 19 January 2017 |7PM – 31 March 2017
The work of Stéphanie Saadé develops a language of suggestion, playing with poetics and metaphor. She shares clues, signs, imageless and occasionally silent trails with us, which interact like the words of a single sentence. It is for the viewer to decipher them, as would an archaeologist faced with traces, fossils, and fragments. This enigmatic quality often stems from the artist’s own experience. With Stéphanie Saadé, the immaterial is actual matter, perpetuated by memory beyond the exhibition and the experiences it engenders.
Stéphanie Saadé was born on January 11,1983 in Lebanon. She lives and works between Beirut and Paris. Saadé graduated in Fine Arts from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris, France and attended a post-graduate program at the China Academy of Arts, Hangzhou, China. She was an artist in residence at the Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht, The Netherlands (2014/2015), and the Cité Internationale des arts, Paris, France (2015).
