" Images are texts. The eye can read between the lines. " R.M
“ Randa Mirza seeks to transgress the normalization of social practices and to subvert the status quo. In the Lebanese context of a society under re(construction), her practice tends to give a voice to what is not represented, thus questioning social constructions.”
Stephanie Dadour, il fera bon y vivre demain, les Cahiers du Mnam, n.122
" Her work is not centered on nostalgia but on the removed today. It urges us on to bewilderment, identifying the invisible place where fiction is concealed, to looking into the passage, into detail. Mirza observes and recreates fantastical visions that take us away from the ford of reality but which oblige us to reconsider our interpretative categories of the real horizon. "

" What is reality? Randa Mirza's photography scarcely insinuates the polarity of the Hamlet type doubt into the spectator, she runs it onto the cutting and fragmented borderline of what is and what is not, in relation to the nature of images and their social utilisation. "
