Ieva Saudargaitė Douaihi (b.1988, Lithuania) is a Lithuanian-Lebanese visual artist based in Beirut, who grew up between Lithuania, the United Arab Emirates and Lebanon. Ieva studied architecture at the Lebanese American University in Byblos and École Spéciale d’Architecture in Paris.

Usually site-specific, her practice spans different media and addresses the spatial and political context by examining the subject’s physical and/or virtual materiality.
