Rediscovering Lebanese clay. An immersion into the uniqueness of this land. Slow. Experimental. Discovering the Unexpected. Embracing the Imperfect.
Based in Beirut, filmmaker and ceramist Zeina Aboul-Hosn contrasts her work with film by exploring the process of creating ceramics.
She discovered ceramics after moving back to Beirut from London 10 years ago. From news rooms, war zones, and refugee crises, her attention shifted to the pottery studio. From the start of her work in ceramics, she was drawn to the touch and color of Lebanese clay, which she uses exclusively in her work.
Her exploration of Lebanese clay has pushed the boundaries of this material to its limits, creating pieces of a special character, generosity, and presence.
