Karine Wehbé was born in Beirut. She graduated with a BA in Art Direction and Graphic Design from ESAG Penninghen, Paris. Wehbé’s work constitutes intimate and public chronicles, drawing on childhood and adolescent experiences, cinematographic and musical influences, architecture and urbanism, various histories and the mechanisms of memory and nostalgia. These components blend fiction and reality, reshuffling moments and geographies. Her methodology starts by dissecting and analysing memory, then reorganising, compartmentalising, fictionalising and documenting it within its broader historical and geographical context. Her current focus is on architecture and its effects on individual and collective narratives and memory.
