It is a strange alchemy to change the cum into gold.
Hélène Hazera in À voix nue by Céline du Chéné – France Culture
Sido Lansari’s work is direct.
Through canvas embroidered with a salacious, and sometimes raw vocabulary, he approaches sexuality in terms and images freed from all Puritan morals, breaking down any gender stereotype related to embroidery.
Falsely light and impertinent, he questions a complexed sexuality and tests the limits by taking inspiration from his surrounding: a spoken word from a conversation or heard on the radio, an excerpt from a rap song or a movie phrase.
Sido Lansari was born in 1988 in Casablanca, Morocco. He workes as a communication officer at the Biennale de la Danse and the Biennale of Contemporary Art in Lyon, France. In 2013, he begins his first creative project Papa suce et Maman coud.
His work was exhibited in Rabat, at Le Cube – Independent art room, in Lyon (Modern Art Gallery – 2014, Galerie des Pentes- 2013), in Marrakesh (Le 18, derb el ferranne – 2015) and in Paris (La Gaîté Lyrique – 2014, Les mots à la bouche – 2016).
He is also the director of communication at the Cinémathèque de Tangier.
