Echoing the work of Francis Bacon in seeking to materialize the images of violence that have become part of our daily lives, Chaza Charafeddine develops a series of photographic self-portraits, “images of her face, “witnessing”, as she calls them.
This special publication by Plan BEY and Chaza Charafeddine gives a new dimension to the project, reflecting the artist’s approach and her own usage of mirrors in the production of the work.
