Lara Erel (*1989, Tassin-la-Demi-Lune in France)

I live and work in Lyon and Vienna (AT)

For about two years, I have been researching the topic of having and being a body and what it means, when this body is female.
Drawing and painting are my main media but I also use ceramic, papier-mâché or printmaking.
