About the artist:
Caline Aoun, born in Beirut in 1983, lives and works between Beirut and London. She graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins, London, in 2005. She received a Postgraduate degree in Fine Art from the Royal Academy Schools, London, in 2009. And she earned a Professional Doctorate in Fine Art from the University of East London in 2012. Her work engages issues related to urbanism, architecture, print and digital advertising space. Aoun invites the audience to consider and question a set of elements that open up to larger notions of over-consumerism, excess, and saturation. Selected solo exhibitions include Fields of Space (Marfa’ Projects, Beirut, 2016), Concrete Layers (Greynoise, Dubai, 2015), Remote/Local, and The Future of Smart Technology in Your Hands(Noshowspace, London, 2013). Her work has also been exhibited in a number of group exhibitions, including “I Spy with My Little Eye …” (Casa Arab, Madrid, and Mosaic Room, London, 2015), “Dust” (Centre for Contemporary Art at Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw, 2015), “Stopped Clocks in Places of Busyness” (Fold Gallery, London, 2013), and “Exposure 2012” (Beirut Art Center). Future group exhibitions include “Home Beirut: Sounding the Neighbors” (Maxxi, Rome, 2017).
