Under the table, under the bridge

Pascal Hachem

The artist sat under an East Beirut flyover – once near Dora, once again in Bourj Hammoud – holding a table-top (complete with cheap tablecloth and tissue package) over his head. The tablecloth obscures the artist’s face during the performance, undermining the conventional function of a portrait.
