Cosmo-Clinical Interiors of Beirut examines the constructed space, interior finishes, and designed protocols of the plastic surgery clinic to make perceptible its role in shaping subjects, virginity culture and an ideal body. The exhibition is probing the medical-cosmetic industry where cultural ideas of virginity are hacked and commodified through hymenoplasty and prosthetic hymens. The architecture is understood as the confluence of the technological, social, and economic-not a built fact, but an organizing force in a constellation of produced and productive objects.
