Amal Saade is a multidisciplinary artist and a teacher of History of Art at the Lebanese American University and at ALBA, Beirut. She studied Design and Painting in Rio de Janeiro where she lived from 1987 until 1992. She then pursued her education in France, notably at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, where she specialized in Multimedia Installations in the workshops of Annette Messager, Barbara Leisgen and Mona Hatoum. Saade returned to Lebanon after living in France, Brazil and Germany. Of her scattered lives she keeps the love of travelling and meeting people as well as a great interest in the urban and territorial themes that she addressed in her projects ”Beirut – Rio – Paris” and “Beirut – Havana”. Her images can’t be subject to any demonstration. Her videos are often composed of still shots. Saade works images and sensations with minimalism. A landscape, a character here, a map and sound itinerary there, always sober and sensitive.
