Portrait of Tania El Khoury

Tania El Khoury

Tania El Khoury lives and works between London and Beirut. She creates immersive installations and challenging performances in which the audience is an active collaborator. Her work has toured around the world and won multiple awards. It has been shown in spaces ranging from the British Museum to a cable car, a fisherman’s boat and an old church in Beirut once used as a military base during the Lebanese civil war.

She is the co-founder of Dictaphone Group, a Beirut-based research and live art collective aiming at reclaiming public space. Gardens Speak, Tania’s latest work, will be presented at Next Wave Festival 2014: an anti-monument, participatory artwork and a testimony to Syrian activists who died during their struggle for freedom.
