Majd Abdel Hamid’s exhibition seeks to construct a personal, intimate and collective memory of a particular day. 800 meters and a corridor projects different fictions to evoke this moment.

The first one is built from a postulate after the deadly explosion of August 4, 2020 in Beirut: If we add it all up, how long was the thread that was used to stitch people up? The exhibition unrolls the meters of thread needed for the artist and the population to stitch up, to repair bodies and minds, to regain sanity after the unthinkable. Whether it is the thread of Greek mythology, the Moirai weaving life, or surgical threads that heal wounds, the artist, in constant movement, confronts time in its duration, over hundreds of meters of stitching. Artistic categories no longer exist; only experimentation and transformation count.
