JANUS Gate by Ayman Baalbaki - Installation

Ayman Baalbaki's monumental installation titled Janus Gate for the Lebanese Pavilion at the 59th Venice Bienniale : “My starting point was Beirut, which I see as a city rich in what Michel Foucault refers to as ‘other spaces.’ Along the model of the word ‘Lebanonization,’ meant to describe the fragmentation of a state, ‘Beirutization’ defines places troubled by barricades and borders – in other words, to speak of the urban dismemberment of a city and its fragmentation into discrete islands.”
