To cel­e­brate the 35th anniver­sary of his gallery, Claude Lemand, gal­lerist and art pub­lisher in Paris and major donor to the Institut du monde arabe museum, is pleased to pro­pose to the Parisian public a choice of sump­tuous paint­ings from the 2000s by the artist HANIBAL SRUJI, his song of the world, his sub­lime visions, mate­rial and spir­i­tual, of the Lebanon of his child­hood.

Agenda cul­turel:
Hanibal Srouji and dream therapy. Although it bears the scars of war, the work of Hanibal Srouji is ther­a­peutic. It repairs the Lebanese, softens the trauma rooted in them and illus­trates a part of the dream that everyone car­ries within them­selves. Hanibal’s art has a psy­cho­an­a­lyt­ical dimen­sion.

Nayla Tamraz:
A chro­ma­tism as much as a song, mixing the visual and musical dimen­sions, in a synes­thetic sen­sory approach. One is of course tempted to see in this incan­ta­tion yet another way of uniting with the uni­verse - one thinks of the nov­elist Jean Giono’s Song of the World which recounts, in a lyrical mode, an ideal of fusion between man and nature, a sort of eulogy to cre­ation, while con­veying the idea of a new fight where the broth­er­hood of men pre­vails over vio­lence.
From 2010, in a series of ver­tical paint­ings titled Land and Sea, which fea­ture lay­ered paint washes, Hanibal Srouji would revisit his impres­sions of land, sea and end­less sky, as he would later oppor­tu­nity to develop the strictly musical dimen­sion of his painting. He will affirm that, for him, painting is visual music and that, when he hears music, he sees colors. (Excerpts. Nayla Tamraz, Le Chant élémentaire de Hanibal Srouji, Ici Beyrouth, 2023)
