Lara Kramer

Lara Kramer is an artist of mixed Oji-Cree and settler heritage, born in London, Canada. Lara lives in Tiohtià:ke / Mooniyang / Montreal, Canada. She is a member of the first generation not to attend the Indian residential schools of Canada. Her practice includes performance, choreography, installation, sound art, video, and visual art. Her choreography, research, and fieldwork over the last twelve years have been grounded in intergenerational relations and knowledge, and her work stands out for the use of deceleration and the close and instinctive listening to the body as forms of resistance.
