'Depths' by Lara Zankoul

Ayyam Gallery Beirut is pleased to present 'Depths', the first solo exhibition of photographic and cinemagraphic works by Lebanese artist Lara Zankoul, from 10 January – 15 February 2013.

The compositions of Lara Zankoul are contemporary fairy tales, which explore the charm and mystery of the human psyche. Whimsical and playful, they represent an attempt to invent new worlds, to push against the boundaries of our reality and escape the monotony of everyday life. The characters inhabiting Zankoul’s work are anonymous and timeless, universal symbols existing within a fantastical and surreal landscape.

The exhibition will comprise a series of ten photographs exploring the role of surrealism and dreams in the construction of our reality.

Also on display will be a series of cinemagraphs - still images incorporating an element with movement - which further play with our understanding of what is real and unreal.

Born in Lebanon in 1987, Lara Zankoul lives and works in Beirut. She has participated in group exhibitions within the Middle East and France. Part of the Shabab Ayyam incubator programme, she was an award recipient at the 2011 Shabab Ayyam Photography Competition.
