Zillij collage

Zillij collage, artist Liza Lemsatef CunninghamDiptych paper cut collage from my sketchbook featuring found imagery from advertising, a traditional domestic riad interior and the female form.

Playing with notions of traditional gender roles, identity and interrupted contiguity. Influenced by traditional Moroccan zillij tessellated tile patterns and forms used as wooden screens forming a membrane  between the private and the public sphere.

Selected for exhibition ‘It’s Your Show’ at UCLA Westwood, California
