Etel Adnan

1925 - 2021

Born in Beirut (LB), died in Paris (FR).

Etel Adnan is a polymath – at once a philosopher, poet, writer and visual artist. Having lived in Lebanon, America and France, Adnan’s art and writing have typically considered such subjects as conflict, belief, nature and the human condition. Adnan’s works as a visual artist, specifically her ‘leporello’ folded-paper works, combine text with vivid imagery. Floating between sculpture and painting, poetry and image, these works defy easy categorisation.
