Mounira Al Solh / The Vasseur BALTIC Artists' Award 2022.
Mounira Al Solh’s paintings, works on paper, embroideries and films explore migration, memory, trauma and loss. Drawing from the artist’s personal conversations and encounters with those who have been affected by conflict in Syria, Lebanon and the Middle East region, Al Solh’s works tell stories of displacement and uncertainty, often reflecting on the struggles of women in the Arab world. The artist’s exhibition at BALTIC will include a large-scale embroidered tent developed collaboratively with groups of women in Lebanon, the Netherlands and Gateshead.
