Charbel-joseph H. Boutros

Charbel-joseph H. Boutros was born in Lebanon in 1981 and lives and works between Beirut and Paris.
In his work invisibility is charged with intimate, geographical and historical layers; finding poetic lines that extend beyond the realm of existing speculations and realities.
Being born in the middle of the Lebanese Civil War, his art is not engaged in an explicit political and historical reflection, but is more accurately haunted by the said political and historical reflection.
Charbel-joseph H. Boutros was a resident at the Pavillon, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, and was a researcher at the Jan van Eyck Academie, the Netherlands.
His work has been shown internationally, at the 12th International Istanbul Biennial, Turkey, the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, and the Centre Pompidou-Metz.
