SAMAHA Roy

Exhibits at Beirut Exhibition Center

Lebanese video artist and photographer Roy Samaha lives and works in Beirut, where he was born. With a background in film studies, he started exhibiting videos in 2003. Samaha’s work deals with personal history, death, mourning the closed ones, and the memory of the personal objects. He particularly criticizes the constant assault of images, both propaganda and advertising, one is subjected to in contemporary society.

 

Samaha’s work has been shown in many international festivals, including Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin (2003), the Singapore Biennale (2006), La Rencontre Internationale (Paris/Madrid/Berlin, 2007), Meeting Points 5 (Brussels/Berlin/Egypt, 2009), and in Aberdeen (Scotland) in 2010. He has also taken part in collective exhibitions in Beirut and Munich.

 

A resident at Apexart New York in 2010, Samaha also worked ten years in the television industry, and now teaches alternative video practices at Saint Joseph University and the American University of Beirut.
