About the collection:
Here is a selection of photographs from the series "Fictional Tales Of Freedom And Borders" that Ghyda took during her many visits to Beirut's public spaces. Fences, walls, blinders, barricades,.. all means possible to block access to spaces that are by nature, public. Here we see how people interact with elements foreign to the notion of public space and make them part of their experience while utilising the space. We notice how a foreign entity intended to privatize a public space changes the whole scenery, imposes a contrast between the natural and the built, gives a sense of collage to a life we live daily and adds a feeling of defiance to the many attempts at privatizing what is a public right for all to enjoy.
