Lara Buffard is a French Baroque persona based in London. She is a performance artist and a maker who incorporates symbolic and surrealistic visuals within her work. Lara is interested in exploring the personal, feminist strategies and subjectivities in a lived world, the liminal space between reality and surreal fantasy, performance art and ritual.

She subverts the darkest aspects of life through striking and colourful images, communicating personal and social ideas in playful and powerful acts, transforming the human body into a Raphaelite creature.

Lara graduated in Museology and later after an early middle-life crisis…. in Theatre Performance and Contemporary Live Arts.  She is Body Intelligence Collective’s creative producer which involves contemporary dance and new technology.
