A writer and poet, Cristiana shows through her work a deep attention to the power and influence of words, to the role of narratives, to the possibilities of word associations, and to meaningful breaks. Cristiana explores (through performance, video, and installations of embroidered objects and tapestries) issues related to verbalization and translation, to the correspondence between physical and nominal dimensions. Some of her themes are the use of language in propaganda, the transition between territories, the redefinition of memory and identity, displacement and belonging, and the porous borders that separate regions while allowing contact. She lives and works in Beirut and Dubai.
