Habby Osk’s interests lies in basic physics: balance, movement, gravity, time and force. These concepts play an important role across her art practice as she creates works which test the limits of balance and stability and explore gravity’s influence over time using sculpture, photography and installation as her primary medium. Osk places objects in precarious situations to probe how far they can go without tipping over, to capture the moment of stillness before the looming collapse and the transformation over time.

Annabel Daou’s work takes place at the intersection of writing, speech, and non-verbal modes of communication. Her paper works, videos, sound pieces, and performances deal with yearnings and anxieties that are both personal and political. Her process involves mining the expressive possibilities of ordinary words and phrases in order to reveal unexpected intimacies between individual and collective experience. Frequently, the work evokes moments of rupture, chaos, and misunderstanding, but always with the tenuous possibility of repair.
Annabel Daou has exhibited work at National Museum of Beirut; KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; and Park Avenue Armory, New York, among others.
