Christine Kettaneh has been teaching at universities in Beirut and London while perusing her practice as an artist. She holds an M.S. in Finance and Economics from the London School of Economics (2005) and a M.A. in Fine Arts from Central Saint Martins (2013). In her practice, Kettaneh investigates the boundaries of language and systems in research-based works that are simultaneously sculptural and performative. Her works are imbued with traces from ordinary life mapped out as a hierarchy of coordinates in which concrete meaning is sometimes awkwardly vague and lost. Kettaneh has collaborated with other artists and participated in several shows internationally. Most recently, she won the international Arte Laguna Prize in “Sculpture and Installation” Venice (2015).
