2D, 4D

Lara Kamhi (Istanbul, 1987) has studied Theatrical Studies at University Sorbonne Nouvelle Paris-III and Film Studies at the American University of Paris with a concentration on French New Wave before obtaining an achievement scholarship and completing her Bachelor’s Degree in Film and Television with an High Honours degree in 2011 at Istanbul Bilgi University.
With an extensive background in Jazz Music, she has been attending advanced sound engineering classes at The London Music School and analogue film shooting & processing courses at no.w.here while pursuing her higher education at Slade School of Fine Art (UCL) in London where she completed her Master’s Degree in Fine Art Media with Merit and the Julian Sullivan Award for achievement in Fine Art Media, in 2013.
Having directed numerous short experimental films during her student years, she has been also working as a music video director and visual, stage & lighting designer for plays, videos, concerts and events. Upon returning to Istanbul, she founded an independent art initiative named Prizmaspace in 2014, where she nationally and internationally curated an exhibition series comprising of twelve shows focusing on site-specific, immersive and cinematic approaches with emerging & established artists coming from filmmaking backgrounds, until 2016.
Since 2010, Kamhi has exhibited and screened her works in galleries, museums and public spaces, nationally and internationally. She is from a multinational family comprising of Turkish, Spanish, Ukrainian and Romanian descents. She fluently speaks Turkish, French, English, Spanish and has taken courses in Italian, German and Russian. She presently works on her short film Transparency of Being and her first feature film Chaosmos while generating other illusions nationally and internationally.
Lara Kamhi's artistic practice operates at the edge of perception. By transgressing the borders between fields of visual storytelling, sound, light art and site-specific installation, she creates and captures immersive image spaces, soundscapes and narratives in which she explores and investigates the confusing conflict between appearance and truth. Projecting on or through form and animating as if from within, her technological yet intuitive approach plays and experiments with visual boundaries.
