My work revolves around issues of place, otherness, embodied memory & the performativity of (cultural) identity. The process takes the form of a social event- a performance or a happening. The artwork carries a tension between the personal & the universal & takes different forms: performance, video, photos or text.

About Me

Lina Issa is a Lebanese artist who lives and works in Amsterdam. A graduate of the Graphic Design program at the American University of Beirut (2002). Lina left Lebanon for a postgraduate research fellowship in Fine Arts at the Jan Van Eyck Academy in Maastricht (2003-2005). She then earned a Master in Visual Arts from the Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam (2006). Since then she has worked, alone and in collaboration with others, in a range of media, to explore tensions between the personal and the universal. As an immigrant to Holland, her performative work is inspired by issues of place, otherness and cultural identity. Using ideas of physical displacement, Lina puts herself in situations that create the conditions for the unfolding of new relationships and real and imagined narratives. In her work, Lina questions the ways we construct and (re)enact our subjectivities.

“Arriving at each new city, the traveler finds again a past of his that he did not know he had: the foreignness of what you no longer are or no longer possess lies in wait for you in foreign, unpossessed places.”

― Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities
