Dima Hajjar is a visual artist based in Beirut.


In her researches, she tackles subjects related to her own background, exploring social and identity issues, using objects of public and personal life that she de-contextualises so that they build new meanings.


Hajjar is currently working on a project involving Vermeer’s Lacemaker, which she sets in a context of war, conflict, then reconstruction, all the while attempting to knit the fragments of her identity. Hajjar also creates animations; the first one, X-rays for her was screened at the French Cultural Center of Beirut in 2008.


Hajjar has been the recipient of many awards, including prizes from the International Millennium Painting Competition (London, Stockholm, New York, 2000),the Jeux de la Francophonie (Ottawa, Canada, 2001), and the Sursock Museum (Beirut, 2003). She has had two solo exhibitions in Beirut, and participated in group shows in France, Canada, Cameroon, Egypt, Algeria and London. She has recently shown her work in Berlin at the Berliner Liste for Contemporary Art and Photography (2010).
