Everyday Madonna. 2009

In his video Nadim Asfar draws attention to the periphery of the Lebanese war and the representation of the non-representative: the recording of traces of everyday life and its sensual and physical presence in the private sphere. Asfar translates the fear of the loss of subjective memory and of the disappearance of mental images into a very intimate visual language that captures the fragility of the Lebanese presence during and after the bombardment of southern Lebanon by the Israeli army in 2006.
