There was and There was not (Kan ya ma Kan)
Artist: Jayce Salloum.

Authors: François Dion, Walid Ra'ad.
Optica, Montreal, 1996.

Ra'ad shows how Salloum's installation multiplies formal, political, and social relationships within objects collected during a sojourn in Lebanon in 1992-1993. In an interview with Dion, the artist comments on his working process and the importance of the “conceptualization of the perceived political and social exigency.”
