A pall of loss hangs over fire.Depictions of family barbeques are relatively rare among serious artists.The marks of smoke and flame provide a motif of sorts for "Tra Due Fuochi" (Between Two Fires), a solo exhibition of work by the Brussels-based, Aleppo-born artist now up at the Beirut Exhibition Center.Boghossian has experimented with applying fire and smoke to various media (especially canvas and paper) for some years now.A few bronzes complement several fire-scoured works formed from more fragile media.Among the more attractive-looking pieces in this show are several monochrome canvases whose wispy surface patterns were left by the artist's crafty application of smoke to the surface.That exhibition too featured the artist's experiments with flame-made art.Gallerist Michele Casamonti and critic Bruno Cora, this show's curator, will discuss "Fire in Contemporary Art," which will presumably provide some art historical context for Boghossian's practice. "Fire in Contemporary Art" and "Contemporary Art between Occident and Orient" will be held at BEC Jan. 10 at 7:30 p.m. For more information, ring 01-962-000 ext.
