7 Questions for Artist Mouna Rebeiz on Her Tarot-Inspired Works for the Venice Biennale, δημοσίευση Artnet News [20/12/2022]
French-Lebanese contemporary artist Mouna Rebeiz was classically trained in the tradition of the Old Masters. Over the course of her career, however, she has developed a personal style that is decidedly modern, engaging with a wide range of subjects, themes, and materials.
In 2018, her solo show “The Trash-ic, or Trash in the Face of Beauty” at Saatchi Gallery, London, featured 17 works that played on the concept of trash, or, as she described it, “something you don’t want to live with, something you reject.” The works in the show reflected on a cultural period of filtered realities and depreciated personal connections.
This past year, Rebeiz was selected to exhibit at the Venice Biennale, where she presented “The Soothsayer” (2022), comprised of 22 works based on the major arcana of the Tarot of Marseille. Painted on polished aluminum panels, and employing styles and compositions of the Old Masters, the works aim to symbolize and reflect ideas of psyche and self-awareness.
We recently spoke with Rebeiz to find out more about her practice and the inspiration behind “The Soothsayer.”
