Biography from Sotheby's Doha:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Marwan Rechmaoui is a Lebanese artist whose work deals with themes of urban development and social history of his native city of Beirut.  The Lebanese capital has always been a theater for social and political conflict, such issues which are further explored throughout Rechmaoui’s main body of work.

His Beirut Caoutchouc is a large, black rubber floor mat in the shape of a map of Beirut’s center.  The aerial plot is embossed with meticulous detailing of roads and byways, which are divided into sixty-seven pieces demarcating individual neighborhoods. 

Rechmaoui’s installation examines the physical and social schisms that have sculpted one of the world's most conflicted cities.  Through this installation Rechmaoui highlights these divisions to address various topics of debate: the underlying causes and consequences of cultural difference, exploration of identity, attachment, and the impact of its social political history on the everyday lives of its inhabitants.
