I Am Folding the Land - Catherine Cattaruzza

Date of Publication :  30/06/2022
Exposition :  I Am Folding the Land, I Am Folding the Sea
ISBN :  9791069995499
Language :  Français & Anglais / French & English
Number of pages :  95p
Publisher :  Auto-édition
In I Am Folding the Land, Catherine Cattaruzza explores her relationship to the convulsions of the world, with Lebanon as its epicentre. It is through the journey that led her along the three major seismic faults of this country that she proposes a translation of these landscapes. Her work is nourished by territory, trace, identity and memory. She questions the landscape in its political and poetic dimensions, on what it tells us about the world, the transformation of the physical territory, and the thought that links the visible to the invisible. The permanent instability of Lebanon has led the artist to work with expired film since 1992, a pivotal year which, at the end of the war that began in 1975, saw the establishment of the political, economic and social system that led to the current collapse of the state. The expiry of these films highlights the intangible, the uncontrollable, strong conceptual axes that participate in the tilting and erasure of these landscapes and tell us about their state of liminality.
