Rola Khayyat

Rola Khayyat is a Lebanese artist whose work explores dimensions on representations of war, violence, memory and identity, giving insight into oft-neglected facets of normal life during wartime. A particular lens is cast on this intertwining of ordinary and extraordinary, drama and banality as a feature of life under recurrent war.

My interest in the intersection between art and war developed out of a personal experience, which continued to shape and inform my academic and artistic sensibility.
