Alia Hijaab is an artist, animator, and storyteller based on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh first nations. In her practice Alia muses on the construction of memory and belonging, and draws from her experience as a mixed-race Syrian who grew up in the Arabian Gulf and immigrated to Canada by herself at 18. Combining food symbology, nostalgic colour scapes, and poetry, her animations and illustrations welcome the viewer in and ask them to stay a while.
