UMAM Documentation and Research (UMAM D&R), Houssam Boukeili
Type of Organisation:
A bus and its replicas is a project combing a collection of silk screens that Houssam Bokeili began in 2004; it attempts to makes sense of the figure of "the bus" in the artist's post-war memories. By choosing the medium of seriogrophy or silk screen, a technique of mechanical reproduction, the artist raises questions about representations and memory. What is the relationship between representations of his childhood school-bus and memorializations of the Ain el-Remmaneh bus? With the help of UMAM Documentation & Research, A bus and its replicas... offers a moving visual response to this question.
