Tarrah Krajnak

The body work that we will have at Lux, titled the Lima Peru 1979 Projects, is about the intersection of the revolutionary context of 1979 Lima Peru and her own identity. Krajnak was born that year in Peru and adopted from an orphanage. This project is a reconstruction of the history of that year in Peru and Krajnak’s search for her identity and place within that history. Using archival imagery she projects photographs that she intersects with her body and thus creates self-portraits. The use of her body also references the inherent trauma violence leaves on the body.

Krajnak is now based out of Los Angeles and is currently an Associate Professor of Art at Pitzer College in Claremont, CA. She has widely exhibited both nationally and internationally, such as Honor Fraser Gallery in Los Angeles, Houston Center for Photography; SF Camerawork; Philadelphia Photographic Arts Center; The National Museum of Women in the Arts; Photo Madrid; Photo London, amongst many more.
