The essence of Charbel-joseph H. Boutros’ practice is sculpting invisibility and treating it as a material. In his oeuvre, invisibility subtly weaves intimate, geographical, and political narratives, re-questioning the role of an overtly engaged artist from the Middle East and finding poetic lines extending beyond the realm of existing speculations and realities. For Boutros, each exhibition is a new geography that reformulates reality.
