Caline Aoun

b. 1983, Beirut, Lebanon / Lives and works in Beirut

Aoun’s work involves reduced experimental correctives, inversions, and resting places in a historical moment of technological advancements . By addressing the changeability and the undercurrents of the hidden material and physical world, Aoun shows how inseparably real and virtual worlds are actually linked. In her work, Aoun encapsulates these hidden events by revealing how the continuous accumulation of matter can essentially change what we see and make it possible to sensually grasp otherwise intangible connections.

Aoun graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design, London, UK in 2005. She received a Postgraduate diploma in Fine Art from the Royal Academy Schools, London, UK in 2009 and earned a Professional Doctorate in Fine Art at the University of East London, London, UK in 2012.
