Having majored in both Architecture and Fine Arts, Christian Sleiman experiments with the solid boundaries that are set by the city’s architecture, the ones that embody the spiritual merits, and the values of their owners. Sleiman’s compositions reconstruct the urban scene and highlights, not only the external imagery, but also what comes as possession and misfortune with it. In his Domesticated series, the artist explores the vernacular urban architecture as a living organism.
