about Charbel-Joseph H. Boutros
In his work invisibility is charged with intimate, geographical and historical layers, finding poetic lines that extend beyond the realm of existing speculations and realities. Being born amidst the Lebanese conflict, his art is not engaged in an explicit political and historical reflection but is more accurately haunted by the said political and historical reflection.
H. Boutros was a resident at The Pavillon, Palais de Tokyo, Paris; and was a researcher at Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht. His first extensive institutional exhibition in Europe was recently shown at S.M.A.K. Museum, Ghent.
His work has been shown internationally at: the Istanbul Biennial; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Punta della Dogana, Venice; Centre Pompidou, Metz; S.M.A.K. Museum, Ghent; CCS Bard College, New York; the Bahia Biennial, Salvador; the Yinchuan Biennale; CCA Warsaw; Morsbroich Museum, Leverkusen; Barjeel Art Foundation, Sharjah; Beirut Art Center; La Criée Centre for Contemporary Art; Marres, Maastricht.
