Inside My Broken Forest

« Des corps qui se brisent puis se reconstruisent »
« Des forêts qui brûlent et qui se régénèrent »

Dans un décor post-apocalyptique, Inside My Broken Forest met en scène le rouge et le noir, l’humour et le drame, la colère et la contemplation!

About the artist

Born in 1966, Alain Vassoyan is a Lebanese-Canadian artist based in Beirut. He studied Sculpture at the Ecole de Ceramique Bonsecours in Montreal and Art History at Montreal University. He’s currently teaching sculpting at the Academie Libanaise des Beaux Arts (ALBA) and the Saint Joseph University of Beirut.

Vassoyan’s work has been showcased in collective and individual exhibitions around the world. He held a solo exhibition at “Salle du Gesu” in Montreal, Canada in 1995, and three solo shows at Galerie Janine Rubeiz in Beirut: “Djoudou City” (2009), “Labyrinthe d’Oiseaux” (2011), and “Reconstruire Venus” (2017).

His artworks were part of several collective exhibitions: “Constantin Brancusi Cultural Center” in Montreal, Canada (1995), “Goethe Institute” in Beirut, Lebanon (2005); “Sursock Museum” in Beirut, Lebanon (2006 and 2018); “Beirut Art Fair” (2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015); “Art 14” in London, UK (2014); “Abu Dhabi Art” in the UAE (2014); “Break all Frames” at Beit Beirut, Lebanon (2014); and “Beirut 2020” at Galerie Janine Rubeiz. In 2005, one of his works was selected in an international contest by the Hyogo Prefectural Museum in Kobe, Japan.

Vassoyan is renowned for his three-dimensional sculptural installations, and his work is permanently exhibited with Galerie Janine Rubeiz.
