I invite waves to come, 2017

Site-specific intervention
Cinder blocks made with salt
Location: Jezzine riverbed

Nassereddine’s piece, composed of salt bricks, was installed on Jezzine’s main dry riverbed and remained standing there for nearly a year. The work deals with notions that are embedded in the locale's history defined by its day-to-day life: fragility, building on unstable grounds, erosion and destruction. It explores the river as a site of constant flux, highlighted by absence of water and its cycle of elements. It is a reflection on water’s destructive ability to alter material forms.
