Just like the pages of a palimpsest, Lamia Joreige works on the notion of Time, the recordings of its trace, and its effects on us, through its appearances and disappearance. All the while, her work in ‘Records for Uncertain Times’ is grounded in the recent history and the present time in Beirut, the city in which she resides. Attempting to express non-linear time, she experiments from playing with images of a past event replayed in the present time, to time being inscribed in the presence of matter.
