Lynn Kodeih

December 2016

Born in Lebanon in 1982, Lynn Kodeih lives in Beirut. She works primarily with text, video, performance and its traces. Her work is interested in science and fiction, the normalization of violence, past and present mythologies, and what it means to give birth/life in the time of death.

She is the co-founder of the collective Polycephaly, a place for conversation and research around the process of art making.
