Elle (Oriental) Magazine, May 2008 issue:


From Portland (USA), the idea of Taylor Stevenson, a “social worker” as they say in France, is blazing a trail…from Brazil to Lebanon, “Live Debris” demonstrates the absurdities of a world that discards everything and the indisputable creativity of those capable of creating things with other people’s trash.  The Beiruti exposition will occur twice.  It will start at Souk El Tayeb in Saifi with a series of recycled art workshops.  Then, in the end of May, the works will be exhibited at Umam in the southern suburbs of Beirut.  There will be works by Marwan Nahle, the lamps and furniture of Ziad Abichaker (founder of Cedar Environmental, which works in recycling on a national level) and the work of students.  Also included are the rugs of the Egyptian “Zabaleen” made from discarded rags from the streets and Brazilian handbags made from plastic.  Among other things… “My goal is to encourage visitors to set aside their prejudices”, explains Taylor Stevenson.  Message received.

May 3rd at Souk el Tayeb and from May 28th at Umam (www.umam-dr.org)
