Daniele Genadry is an artist whose practice focuses on the relationship of painting and photography, which she uses to examine the potential of an image to generate its own temporality, and sensitize our perceptions. She studied at Dartmouth College, NH (BA 2002) and at the Slade School of Art, London (MFA 2008). Recent solo exhibitions include Staring in Place, In Situ Gallery, Paris, Slow Light at the Beirut Art Center and Recomposing Light at Centre Intermondes, La Rochelle, France. Her work has been exhibited at MUCEM, Sursock Museum, Sharjah Biennial 13, Biennial del Sur, SMBA, and the Bronx Museum. Genadry lives and works in Beirut and teaches at the American University of Beirut.

Staring at Sight
Through a direct engagement with the actual landscape and surroundings at Camargo, this project will create a new body of work (paintings and drawings) that consider how a material surface (a painted image) can elicit a conscious mode of seeing. The project will begin with a study of Post-Impressionist painting and early black and white analogue photography in contrast and relation to current visual technologies and ways of looking (virtual, digital and electronic images), in order to reflect on how these different perceptive modes affect our comprehension of the time and space.
