SHIFT FESTIVAL - October 23-26, 2008 - Basel, Switzerland
"For some years now, and with almost obsessive intensity, Lucien Samaha has been archiving his
approximately 300’000 photos. These include pictures of social events, images of friends, snap
shots of New York night life etc. Intended to organize the growing number of photos the archive
eventually generated its own dynamics and required more images. The result is a constantly
changing temporal sculpture of pictures of Samaha's personal being – full of emotions and
memories – both in shape as in content."
