Rihab Essayh (she/her) is a Canadian-Moroccan interdisciplinary artist whose large-scale, immersive installations create spaces of slowing down and softening. Her research considers issues of isolation and disconnection in the digital age, imagining futurities of soft-strength and social reconnection by proposing a heightened attunement to colour, costume, tactility and sound. She obtained her BFA at Concordia University in Montreal in 2017 and her MFA at the University of Guelph in 2022. Essayh has exhibited work at Conseil des Art de Montréal, La centrale Powerhouse, Fofa Gallery, Never Apart, Art Souterrain festival, The plumb, and the Art Gallery of Guelph.
