Michele Assaf Kamel

In her ‘Interdependances’ pieces made with Lebanese clay, Michele Assaf Kamel examines the Nahnou (We) and the Antoum (You) dilemma. The reciprocate approach with the Other, the perpetual dependency and the questioning of the unavoidable coexistence, finds here a symbolic and three-dimensional expression in the sculptural pottery pieces.

Born in 1948 in Beirut, Michele took courses in art history and attended workshops in Beirut, London and Paris working in many different artistic disciplines before turning to sculptural ceramics.
