The Perfect Arab Artist by SIRINE FATTOUH
On display are two original series of personalized national and international postage stamps that Fattouh produced in 2014. One of the countries is Belgium.
The Perfect Arab Artist, as an art installation, critically deals with what is expected of an Arab artist. As such it also refers to the image(s) that Arab artists distribute of themselves in order to answer to an existing demand in the art market. Sirine Fattouh is a Lebanese artist born in 1980 and living between Paris and Beirut. Her work, as an artist and researcher, consists of examining the consequences of violence and displacements on people’s identities.
