Takt Academy is happy to present: Lamis Haggag!
Lamis Haggag is a Cairo/Toronto-based visual artist. She received her MFA from the University of Calgary, Canada in 2013. She obtained a BFA from the faculty of Fine Arts, Helwan University, Egypt in 2008. Her practice involves a variety of investigations of the psychological effect of habitual confinement on a human being. Her work is a critique of social restraints and institutionalization. She presents her ideas through painting, drawing, installation, interactive installation, performance, and public intervention as a process of de-territorialization and re-territorialization. Haggag Addresses the notion of territorialization by means of the body and the frame demarcating a certain space, thus, de-mobilizing the movement between the outer public and the inner psychological. She deploys absurd metaphors, such as escaping the frame and achieving a transparent body to achieve conceptual freedom. Since 2006 Haggag participated in a number of National and international group and solo exhibitions, she exhibited and performed in Cairo, Calgary, Beijing and Dakar.
