The gallery is hosting "The Unseen," an exhibition of 12 recent photographs by Lara Zankoul that address the notion of appearances. One of the contributing photographers at the Beirut edition of PhotoMed, Zankoul stages works that by various means – anthropomorphism, say, the question of gender and submerged desire – immerse viewers in the surreal. Complementing the photos is a video projection that documents Zankoul's practice.Zankoul explained how several leitmotifs link each photo to the others in the series.Several works seek to portray the true image of society. The surface of the water conceals that it is in fact human beings that are behaving like animals, albeit clad in stylish brands and polished manners.The second shows two friends smiling at one another above the water's surface; below the surface, the women's hateful feelings toward one another are represented with a pair of scissors.
