Featured in Art Basel Stories: an exploration of Azza El Siddique’s practice, as well as her upcoming installation at Art Basel Miami Beach.

“Memory – a kind of time travel – also plays a role in El Siddique’s installation Final Fantasy (2023), to be presented by Montreal-based gallery Bradley Ertaskiran in Art Basel Miami Beach’s Positions sector (the fair debut for both artist and gallery). Like her previous installations, the structure resembles a sacred space like a pyramid or temple, but also evokes the feeling of, say, a laboratory. ‘The installation reflects my younger years, when I played role-playing PlayStation games with my late brother,’ El Siddique explains. ‘These games feature narratives that remain relevant in our contemporary world: overconsumption, corporate greed, exploitation of natural resources, religious extremism, oppressive governments, natural disasters, pandemics, and so on.’”
