The Studio as a Work of Art. 2010

200 stacked blank canvases

Installation View,  AUB Art Gallery, Beirut, 2013.

"The Studio as a Work of Art is composed of a modular minimalist sculpture that sits on a red carpet. The monumental sculpture itself is formed of 200 blank canvases precariously stacked over each other. In this act of reconfiguration and replacement of the formal function of a classical artistic material lies a poetic and elusive rumination on the process of building an artwork." Aleya Hamza
