Zara Kuredjian is an interdisciplinary artist based in Los Angeles. She engages in installation, drawing, sculpture, and performance to approach corporeal relationships to matter and phenomenological experience. Existential questions tied to time and place are paramount to her work as ways of thinking through layered, often subtly multiplicitous, perceptions of being. She often investigates sites, objects, and materials through geological, archaeological, and materialist lenses as an entry into layered histories and their relationship to contemporary culture. Particular materials, such as glass, obsidian, clay, earth, silver, and water are of importance within her practice because of their physical, symbolic, and historic relationships to time, place, porosity, and void. These works are often multi-sensorial and establish a platform for a participant to experience, wonder, and question their relationship to place. Zara is currently an MFA candidate in the Visual Arts Department at the University of California, San Diego. She was granted an MA in Visual Art (2017) as well as a BA in Art (2015) from California State University, Northridge.
