Wall sculpture. At the beginning of the EXODUS work, the trigger was the migration phenomena over the eras, especially over the last decades. With reference to Friedrich Nietzsche's concept of eternal recurrence or the idea that the universe and its events have already occurred and will recur ad infinitum. THE LEAVING, THE HARBOR, THE LONGING Yet, over the years the work reached a wider aspect to embrace the meaning of the human’s journey in it seek for the harbor, inner balance, peace. As an architect, my work is related to the interaction of the “human” with space, scale, voids, infinity and silence. At a second stage, EXODUS opened the door to infinite exploration and questions about our path and transformation through distance and time. The way materials and architecture influence our sense of time and place. The used media is mostly rusted steel to enhance the sense of time, transformation and deterioration. “L’USURE DU TEMPS”

BIO Artist, architect and designer, Josephina Charabati was born in Germany from a German mother and a Lebanese father. She moved to Lebanon as a child and grew up in Beirut. In1991, she graduated in Architecture and attended in parallel Psychology courses at the Lebanese University in Beirut. She worked in Architecture practices in Germany & Lebanon before establishing DASTUDIO in 2000. DASTUDIO is a workshop where, architecture, design & art meet in a perpetual process of research and experimentation. University teacher since 2017. She started exhibiting her art work in 2000. PHILOSOPHY The most relevant about Josephina Charabati’s work is her “HUMANS”. As an architect, she expresses the interaction of the “human” with space, scale, voids, infinity and above all, silence. Human scale in the urban environment or versus the immensity of nature. Humans in their eternal seek within an abstract context. From an existentialist point of view, the individual's starting point is characterized by what has been called "the existential attitude" or a sense of disorientation, confusion, or dread in the face of an apparently absurd world. A wink to the “Unbearable Lightness of Being” of Milano Kundera to whom “The heavier the burden, the closer our lives come to the earth, the more real and truthful they become” THE EXODUS COLLECTION “Where do we go now?” The English name Exodus comes from the late Latin “Exodus” or from ancient Greek “Exodos” meaning “going out, expedition, departure", "mass migration, exiting of people from an area”. With reference to Friedrich Nietzsche's concept of eternal recurrence or the idea that the universe and its events have already occurred and will recur ad infinitum, the artist questions about the migration phenomena over the eras, specially over the last decades in the Middle East region. In this part of the world constantly shaken by social, religious, economic and political issues, mass migration is faced every day. Yet the Exodus meaning in Josephina Charabati’s work reaches a wider aspect to embrace the human journey in it seek for the harbor, the inner balance, peace. From wall objects, to sculptures, ink drawings and found objects assemblage, she infinitely explores about our path and transformation through distance and time. Her work tackles social and philosophical themes such as migration, recurrence and the wabi sabi concept of acceptance and resilience. https://josephinacharabati.myportfolio.
