Amanda Abi Khalil is in Warsaw at the moment preparing to mount "Dust".Dust (bits of skin, clothing and various bodily and environmental excretions) doesn't figure in all the works this show. The exhibition's curatorial statement suggests that its participating artists were selected because their work interacts with the surrounding environment. Abi Khalil and Ptak have gone so far as to incorporate the "dust" of Ujazdowski Castle into the exhibition architecture.Avakian will unveil a work especially commissioned for this show, one springing from his interest in public monuments. The power of a public monument, he argues in his artist statement, lies in the scale of residue it generates. Other Lebanese and Beirut artists with works on show in "Dust" include Mireille Kassar, who will show pieces from her landscape studies (2009-12).Beirut-based Lorde Selys, who is these days a resident artist at Ujazdowski Castle, has been invited to make a filmic contribution to the exhibition.
