Kelly Azizi reflects on the undramatic but bewildering process of breaking up with her once-best-friend.

Kelly Azizi is currently a PhD candidate in the Department of Gender and Cultural Studies at the University of Sydney. Her research interests include the politics of ethno-cultural and diasporic identities, and institutional critique. Kelly plays an active role in Sydney's art community, and is an advocate of its self-criticality. She was the gallery administrator at 55 Sydenham Rd, an independent art space in Marrickville, from 2017 to 2018. She is secretly plotting a socialist uprising.
