Sweeping is a multi-media installation by London-based, Lebanese artist Sally Souraya, exploring the symbolic and practical implications of the act of sweeping in the context of the aftermath of Beirut’s explosion.

Looking through the eyes, and brooms, of those who were on the ground in Beirut cleaning up weeks and months afterwards, Sweeping draws on a collective experience of solidarity, grief, and resilience. In admiration of people’s efforts to restore a sense of stability and safety through sweeping, the exhibition questions whether there is still a place for hope amid all the destructions?

The exhibition also features a performance of the artist’s personal experience in response to the aftermath, by taking the act of sweeping to the streets of London, in solidarity with those back home
