Andrew Lochhead, Residency & Program Coordinator at Artscape Gibraltar Point

Lamis Haggag, Visual Artist
Lamis Haggag is a Toronto-based visual artist. She received an MFA from the University of Calgary, Canada in 2013 and 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. She works with a variety of mediums such as painting, installation, interactive installation, performance and public intervention, in 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. Since 2006 Haggag has participated in exhibitions and events in Cairo, Calgary, Beijing, Dakar, Berlin and Lagos.
