Zara Kuredjian is a Los Angeles-based artist who engages in an interdisciplinary practice focused on installation, drawing, sculpture, and performance. Her investigations are rooted in corporeal relationships to matter and phenomenological processes. She 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.
“My interdisciplinary practice focuses on installation, drawing, sculpture, and performance to engage with corporeal relationships to matter and phenomenological processes. I am invested in making work that builds and allows room for someone else to wonder. My work is steeped in engagements with form and matter as avenues for investigating language, meaning, and extensions of the body.
I frequently enmesh notions of industrial and digital processes with processes that do not involve human interaction within the works as well. I frequently reference absent and projected bodies such as through language and/or trace. Recently I have been thinking through bodily relationships to the porosity of space. Notions such as whether the idea of space be negative, in-between, illusory, or projected, how the temporal sense of a space can shift, and how a participant may reconsider their relationship to where they might be are important philosophical avenues for my practice.”
