Architect Rana Haddad and artist Pascal Hachem from Beirut were Letting Space international artists in residence. They spent a month in Wellington meeting locals, exploring the history of the city and responding with urban interventions. A vacant space with UDB provided them a workshop space to create the material for their work Unsettled, and meet the public.
Drawing from their experiences of war-torn Beirut, their work responded to the city addressing "the stagnating and missing flow that made the city, and seems to have been avoided and dismissed today from everyday life".
They gave free public talks at City Gallery Wellington, Massey University College of Creative Arts and Victoria University of Wellington.
