Marc Keyrouz is a Lebanese artist who has gained recognition for his unique language of symbols and sculptures. In 2015, Keyrouz created a language of symbols called "55" to express himself after a personal event. According to keyrouz, this language of symbols is a hidden field of expressions formed in shapes and symbols related to all visual transmissions that exist. Marc considers that the language is built on original drawings that integrate the plan of all creation, including the psychology of shapes, the golden ratio, and sacred geometry. [1]

Under the auspices of the Lebanese Ministry of Culture, Keyrouz organized an exhibition of metal sculptures in the courtyard of the Lebanese National Library of Sanayeh, featuring symbols representing six of the most well-known tourist sites in Lebanon. Through his language of symbols, Keyrouz has developed the "Chapter 1" project, which consists of six figures representing the most representative sites in Lebanon: Baalbeck, Cedars, the Qadisha Valley, Anjar, Byblos, and Tyre. Each figure contains a QR code that links to the corresponding archaeological site. The six symbols are connected in one location, Beirut, creating a sort of portal, providing easy access between Beirut and the archaeological sites.[2]

The 6 sculptures, each 2.5 meters tall, are made of metal tubing and arranged in a semi-circle around an ancient Ottoman marble basin, offering visitors to the Lebanese National Library of Sanayeh a unique experience. Keyrouz's art reflects a mystique that appeals to those who enjoy deciphering hidden messages and the use of symbols to express a message.[3][3]

In March 2023, the Lebanese Minister of Culture in the caretaker government, Judge Mohamed Wissam Al-Mortada, inaugurated the "Museum within a Museum" event in the outer courtyard of the National Library of Lebanon. The event was attended by the event's designer and founder, Marc Keyrouz, and a group of interested people.[3]

In his speech, Al-Mortada praised Keyrouz's initiative and accomplishment, emphasising the importance of what he had achieved in establishing the sculptures. Keyrouz confirmed that "Minister Al-Mortada played a significant role in accomplishing this work, as he was the first person I presented the idea to, and he encouraged and urged me to proceed with it because he truly believes in the talent of the youth in Lebanon."[4] [5] [6] [7]

Overall, Keyrouz's work is an example of the power of art to communicate through multiple mediums, including science and technology. The artist continues to create thought-provoking work that both inspires and challenges the viewer to explore the hidden meanings within his language of symbols. [3] [2]
