Lattice Begin Our Discussion says
Critic Merray Gerges, joins us to lead a discussion with Azza El Siddique surrounded in physical presence and conceptual grounding by Azza's current exhibition, Lattice be Transparent.

This discussion is meant to enhance the dialogue intiated by Azza's installation work, which uses an abstracted structure of self-portrait to engage the concurrent complexities of her diasporic Sudanese identity, of microaggressive white supremacist culture, and of virtual reality.



Azza El Siddique is a Toronto based interdisciplinary artist working in sculpture, installation, painting, photography and film. Her work explores themes of adaptation through material exploration. Forms are collectively placed together as stand-ins for personal spaces of habitation or intimate experiences. Ultimately these objects are material self portraits that examine pivotal moments of change. El Siddique received her BFA from Ontario College of Art and Design University. She attended The Chautauqua School of Art residency in Chautauqua, New York and is currently an Artist-in-Residence at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto.

Merray Gerges is a Toronto-based critic.
