Basile Ghosn

Basile Ghosn (born in 1991, lives and works in Marseilles)

Using anonymous architectural images gleaned from specialised magazines from the 30’s to the 70’s, Basile Ghosn recreates urban landscapes and architectures through drawing, the use of scotch tape, plexiglass, photocopying and printmaking techniques. The manipulation of anachronistic elements serves in his works a Lo-Fi re-reading of architecture. In doing so, he creates an image-world where references to Modernism, punk and vernacular culture, literature and architectural theory are mixed with a very pop do-it-yourself aesthetic, while reappropriating the exhibition spaces that host his work.

Basile Ghosn a étudié à la Villa Arson dont il est sorti diplômé en 2018. Co-fondateur avec Won Jin Choi de Belsunce Projects, il est également membre du collectif Atelier Panthera, deux initiatives basées à Marseille. Son travail a récemment été montré à la Cité Radieuse (Marseille), à la Panacée lors du Startpoint Prize, et au Beirut Art Centre (Beyrouth).
