articule has the pleasure of opening the exhibition Silent Citizen by Bambitchell (Toronto) with a discussion between the artists and Nazik Dakkach (Montreal), articule's former Programming Assistant, at 5 PM.
Bambitchell is the artistic collaboration between Sharlene Bamboat and Alexis Mitchell. They have produced mixed media installations since 2008. Their practice uses queer and feminist frameworks in order to reimagine borders, historical patterns of movement and mobility, labour, migration and memory. These frameworks, often showcased through irony and a camp aesthetic, invite nuanced and complicated re-workings of images, architectures, language, sound and bodies. Both Bamboat and Mitchell have independent art practices and are members of the Pleasure Dome Experimental Film & Video Programming Collective.
Born in Casablanca, Nazik Dakkach currently lives in Montreal, where she studies Art History. She is a member of collectives Artivistic and Howl! as well as a founding member of W(W)MIIInc.
The discussion will take place in English with French whispered translation available. It will be followed by the vernissage starting at 7 PM.
Free entrance and warm ambiance.
articule's gallery is wheelchair accessible, but unfortunately, not its bathroom.
