Free Poetry represents the fingerprints found on the dusty surfaces of the city of Beirut. The technique used consists in represent the original drawing of Stéphanie Saadé on the glass and to cut out the forms by sandblasting at high pressure. The sand abrades the material until it gets through the glass plate.
The documented fingerprints are abstract slips left by passers-by in response to dust.
Coming from abandoned or neglected objects (or buildings) such as cars, houses, stores, these dusty glazed surfaces imply the cessation of interactions or a lack of care. They testify to a refusal to be enslaved by the rhythm with which the city covers its objects with dust.
The Stéphanie Saadé’s work is shown at the Centre Pasquart in Bienne.
