KARA INEZ

Kara Inez (b.1991) is a Malaysian artist based in Singapore who draws from her personal experiences to touch on issues surrounding the female body and mental health through mediums such as performance art and sculpture. She is known for the use of abject materials and silicone to create life-like grotesque bodily forms. Her works evoke the feeling of disgust in her audience as a means to challenge the social constructs set in place surrounding these suppressed topics. She graduated from Lasalle College of the Arts with a First Class Honours Degree in Fine Arts in 2019. Being the recipient of The Winston Oh Travel Award (2019), she ventured to Tirupati in South India to carry out research on the hair trade. Her works have been exhibited locally and internationally in galleries and exhibition spaces such as the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore, S.E.A. Focus (Singapore), Art Expo Malaysia, Gajah Gallery (Singapore), nATTA Gallery (Bangkok), and White Box (Kuala Lumpur).
