Amanda Boulos, Round and Round the Rouche We Go, 5:44, 2015
Round and Round the Rouche We Go juxtaposes found footage of two men’s attempts—and ultimate failures—to document the beauty of the Rouche, Beirut’s national and natural monument. The video acts as a metaphor of the confusion surrounding the Lebanese Civil War and the people involved.
Amanda Boulos recently graduated from the MFA program at the University of Guelph and received her BFA from York University. Her work on Palestinian diasporic narratives and histories was nominated for this year’s RBC Painting Competition. She also develops these themes in video works such as Rouche Jump and Cut, which was screened at Whippersnapper Gallery in late 2016, and an in-progress series for Trinity Square Video’s the moving copy residency. http://amandaboulos.com/
