In post-war Beirut, Nadim Karam’s fifteen sculptures invaded the building of Sursock Museum, walking through its courtyard and climbing its façade. Paintings and installations animated the museum inside.
The Sursock Museum project grew while distracting Nadim from a personal critical incident: more than 20 notebooks of his writings and sketches were lost by the nonchalant handling of a shipping company.
“On the way to becoming, loss and worries can take on huge proportions until they paralyze our minds. Only by controlling and overcoming them can we continue to grow. To make so much effort to become, only to wonder; what will remain of it all? TRACES…and not even“.
