Alexandra Choucair always lived a double life. At school, excelling in math and sciences, while, after hours art would take over, expressing itself instinctively in a language without words or numbers. It is perhaps this constant duality which allowed each side of her personality to thrive. As a creative person who grew up in one of the most unstable countries in the world, she felt that she was always busy ‘surviving’ rather than living.
This pushed her to create an imaginary realm, a world where unusual and surreal combinations of different Lebanese memories imprisoned in her mind over the years combined to create a new dialogue through which people could connect.
