June 1, 2012

The extract from Axis of Light features Mona Saudi in her home and studio in Beirut, talking about her practice and experiences during the Lebanese Civil War in shaping her art. She speaks of how the details of stone formation are like a story; the markings revealing traces of our past.


Axis of Light, directed by Pia Getty and released in 2012, is a poignant and absorbing observation of the influences of conflict. through the eyes of eight artists from the Middle East.
