Charbel Samuel Aoun combines his education as an architect and his passion for nature, experimenting with different materials and elements. He thereby creates a system that both examines and questions social and environmental realities, and invites the viewer to embark on a sensual journey where the rational and the emotional are triggered through a multisensory contact with the material.
Whispering Taps (2014)
Taps whisper, dump banned words, deliver moments of life, frustration, secrets. It is necessary to approach to hear what flows. And flowing from these taps are the voices of women, young and old, from Ethiopia, Sri Lanka, the Philippines and elsewhere who came to work in Lebanon to support their families back home. The voices of these women who most of the time have no one to listen and even less to hear. This is the case in Lebanon and it is this injustice that inspires the installation.
