Born in Beirut in 1972, Lamia Joreige is a visual artist and filmmaker who lives and works in Beirut. She earned her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, where she studied painting and filmmaking. She uses archival documents and elements of fiction to reflect on history and its possible narration, and on the relationship between individual stories and collective memory. In her practice, rooted in her country’s experience, she explores the possibilities of representing the Lebanese wars and their aftermath. Her work is essentially on time, the recordings of its trace, and its effects on us.
Joreige’s artwork has been presented in various international exhibitions, including at MAXXI, the National Museum of 21st Century Arts (Rome, Italy); the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo (Turin, Italy); Centre Pompidou (Paris, France); and Musée Nicéphore Niépce (Chalon-sur-Saône, France); the Liverpool Biennial (UK), the Tate Modern (London, UK), the Serpentine Gallery (London) and the Cardiff National Museum (UK); Harvard University’s Radcliffe Institute (Cambridge, MA, US); the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts (Cambridge, MA), the International Center of Photography (New York, US), the New Museum (NY), the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (CA, US); the Sharjah Biennial (UAE); the and Marfa’ gallery (Beirut, Lebanon).
She has presented her films at festivals such as the Marseille Festival of Documentary Film (France); Les Rencontres Internationales (Paris and Berlin, Germany); Paris Cinema; the Mediterranean Festival of Cinema (Montpellier, France); at Home Works I, IV, and VII, Festival du film Libanais, and Beirut Cinema Days (Beirut); and at Medfilm Festival (Rome), where it was awarded best film.
