Pascal Hachem’s work is inspired by everyday life and tends to contextualise his way of thinking with the social and political situations in Beirut. His practice is influenced by an unconsciousness that he cannot escape. The artist does not impose any set of rules upon himself, but rather he is prompted to create by a single impressionable moment. As a result, he has a varied catalogue of work using various mediums including his own body and common objects.
Hachem’s work has been displayed in numerous solo exhibitions internationally including at the Selma Feriani Gallery in Sidi bou Said, Tunisia, Soulangh Artist Village in Tainan City, Taiwan, Beirut Art Centre, Federica Schaivo Gallery in Rome, Belluard Bollwerk International in Fribourg, Switzerland, and the International Istanbul Theatre Festival. His work has also been shared in group shows at institutions such as the Mosaic Rooms in London, Gwangju Museum of Art in Gwangju, South Korea, Carthage Museum in Tunis, Tunisia, and the First Architecture Biennale in Rotterdam, Netherlands. In 2012 he received the Art & Dialogue Between Cultures of the East and West Award by The Boghossian Foundation in Beirut.
