Ramzi Mallat is a Lebanese multidisciplinary visual artist currently pursuing a Masters in
Sculpture at the Royal College of Art. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art from
Lancaster University and has recently been appointed a trustee for the IMOS Foundation
in the United Kingdom. His practice revolves around the concept of origins through a
continuous exploration of cultural identity in a globalized society and its effects on heritage
and ubiquitous truths. By adopting theological and folkloric knowledge into his work, the
artist aims to reveal tradition not as civilizational legacy but rather as invented by a
society’s cultural vanguard in the course of a struggle. Mallat has also participated in
various solo and group exhibitions internationally, notably at the UNESCO Palace (2017)
and the Cervantes Institute (2018) in Beirut, Lebanon. He is currently finalizing a short film/
documentary in relation to the socio-economic crisis which has hit Lebanon and will be
releasing his first publication with Dergham publishing in January 2023 consisting of an
Artist Book, which includes his works ranging from as early as 2013 to 2023, as well as
interviews and critical essays with collaborators and curators, where his practice is
discussed further in detail. Also the artist has been selected for an upcoming artist
residency with the Villa-Legodi Center for Sculpture in affiliation with the Nirox Foundation
located in Johannesburg, South Africa in July 2023 and will have two upcoming solo
exhibitions in London with Danuser & Ramirez gallery later this month and P21 gallery in
October 2023.
