"Joumhouriyat Al Mawz" or "Banana Republic" runs through the end of August at 392RMEIL393 art gallery in Gemmayzeh.
It's open every day from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., excluding Sundays.
Yazan's artistic statement for the show:
Gebran Khalil Gebran once said: 'If Lebanon was not my country, I would have chosen Lebanon as my homeland.' Today, Khalil Gebran is dead, and Lebanese politicians have made most of us want to say, to get a decent living, and a decent pay: 'If Lebanon was not my country, I would have chosen Canada as my homeland...'
They manage the country in the most absurd way, the deputies that you pay to go to parliament and make laws are there ONLY to raise their own salaries, and to extend their own mandate. (It is like paying for Pizza delivery without receiving Pizza)...
I know that paint on a wall will not make these monkeys change anything, but they might feel bad the next time they tighten their tie in front of the mirror..."
