in any bad place

An exhibition by Amelie Bernard. Lebanon, a magnificent and gigantic country site (basically saying it’s a country that is a construction site), is the daily theatre of a constant contradiction between modern buildings emerging within the public space and the destruction of the oldest (oldest buildings/older ones). A site in which the preservation of the immobile heritage is not primary anymore, a site in which it’s about erasing, almost in a compulsive and thoughtless manner, the material heritage of the country – and with (under) the same title – the memory of past to expiate. “In any (bad) place” is a project presented in the form of 2 different axes exploring the notions of the (de)construction, the heritage, and the memory, through installations and sculpture.
