About The Artwork

This piece is part of a long process I have started in 2005, 18 years ago. The collection EXODUS counts now more then 41 pieces variable in size and most of them are unique pieces. The wars and the exodus we are witnessing today are again a proof that Art is the expression of its epoc. I have seen people leaving Lebanon since my childhood. Today I look at the phenomena from another perspective; A seek for a new harbour, inner peace, resilience, human journey. Or maybe on a more philosophical level our transformation through distance and time. How small we are in the infinite landscape. Minimalism has been my guide in my work as an artist and as an architect. The used material is steel painted in black. All pieces are ready to hang.

She started exhibiting her art work in 2000. https://josephinacharabati.com/art Instagram: @josephinacharabati.art PHILOSOPHY From wall objects, to sculptures, ink drawings and found objects assemblage, Josephina Charabati 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. 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. As an architect, she expresses the interaction of the “human” with space, scale, voids, infinity and above all, silence. 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” 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.
