In her exhibition Building a Home with Time Lebanese artist Saadé explores various aesthetics of time-space, derived in part from her personal history, memories of locality and childhood, ruminations about displacement and in so doing relates poetry to the realm of time. It features entirely new works by Saadé, including Magic Hours, Building a Home with Time and A Play of One Actress.

In another newly realized work, A Play of One Actress, Saadé looks at the surreality and construction of memory and personality: What do we selectively or unconsciously remember or grasp onto and why? In which instances does memory fail us and why? Saadé has asked, Minna Wündrich, to recall, for the period of one month–the month of her birthday–all the verses she remembers from all of the theatre performances that she had ever played in.
