Born in Lebanon in 1969 of Lebanese-Egyptian origin, Lara Baladi has lived in Beirut, Paris, London and Cairo, where she currently works and resides. In her work, she addresses memory, both collective and personal, in a codified and multi-cultural language. Every middle eastern woman can relate to the experience of having their fortune read in their coffee cup.. There are so many layers to this visual language. One can get lost in it for hours.
