The Third Line is proud to present the second solo exhibition of photographs by Fouad Elkoury: What Happened to My Dreams? Photographs by Fouad Elkoury 12 November – 17 December, 2009 Fouad Elkoury’s latest photographic series captures fragments of broken societal values, reflecting the lost ideals of a generation that once held expectations for a fair and just society. Elkoury layers text on black and white and colour photographic montages mounted on aluminium, in a poetic and personal exploration of national aspirations and the dream of the individual. The show’s title references the social theories of author and filmmaker Paul Virilio, who explores the relationship between image and war technology. Asking the question “ce qui arrive” (“what happened?”), Virilio provides an analysis of the ways in which a militaristic view now dominates an emerging world culture. The works are the result of a very personal reflection on broader histories, evidence of his internal conflicts and doubts as he looks back on the dreams he had as a young man.
