Hefuna Susan

Hefuna Susan

Exhibits at Beirut Exhibition Center

The Egyptian-German artist Susan Hefuna (born in 1962 to a German mother and Egyptian father) works with drawing, photography, installation and video – techniques through which she networks planes of meaning and reflects multilayered codes that she interprets concretely and abstractly. The central topic here is the mashrabiya, a window in Moslem architecture that is worked in lathes of wood and that regulates the circulation of air and the filtering of light. The structure allowed women to see the outside world without being seen. It acts as a metaphor for separation and connection.


The work of multimedia artist Susan Hefuna,  takes up everyday aspects of life with which she — through photography, video, drawing and digital media — explores the indeterminacy of location and identity and her negotiation of her own identity. Much of Hefuna's work is informed by her dual heritage, which often features striking images of family, interior spaces and cityscapes in and around Cairo. Her work has been widely exhibited such venues as Louvre Paris (2004/2005), Townhouse Gallery, Cairo (2004), Bluecoat Arts Centre, Liverpool (2004), Stadtgalerie Saarbrücken (2004), House of World Cultures, Berlin (2003), Biennale Bamako 2003), and many more.
