Zarah Ackerman is an artist, blogger and maker of things. Her art practice revolves around performance and sculptural works that relate to the body and the paradox that it presents as both contained and container. You could say that she is orally fixated and deals with themes surrounding the mouth as a source of pleasure and the maker of speech. Experimentation is fundamentally related to her process and research into materials. She received her BFA from Emily Carr Institute in Vancouver where she currently lives and works.
