Ely Daou

Short term residency

July - September 2021

Ely Daou. Beirut, 1986

Ely completed his master in Architecture from the Lebanese University-Fine Art institute in 2010. His body of work is concerned in questioning and protesting many of the world’s human conflict and human nature, including his own. As an Interdisciplinary artist, he put his body and mind within a particular situation for the viewer to watch and consider, or putting the viewer into a physical environment to wander, look and wonder. Time, Repetition and Memory are key indicators of the process and often work as a means for him to understand, explore and observe his practice, in which long durational process and documentations are strongly present. Ely works within the political, social and personal art realm in a way where the viewer has space to think through. His work is not declarative, right or wrong, he is simply laying out a situation for consideration and provocation.

Since he moved to Europe in 2012, his work has been exhibited in different venues across Europe, such as the Kanal – Centre Pompidou, Brussels; Museum of Sant Boi, Spain; Incendida, Madrid, SWAB international Art Fair (2015), Barcelona; Centrale Fies-Dro, Italy; Kunststiftung Baden-Württemberg, Stuttgart; Buffer Fringe performance festival–Nicosia, Cyprus; La raffinerie, Brussels; Fabra i Coats, Barcelona, among others.
