“Sculpture was always something very exciting for me. I wanted to get it off the pedestal; let it walk, talk, move around; play with the space. I always like to see things get made in new ways. I feel myself more a sculptor than an object-maker. I definitely deal with gravity and space and materials.” Born in the Netherlands, Lara Schnitger has studied at Royal Academy of Art, The Hague; Academy of Visual Art, Prague; de Ateliers, Amsterdam; and Center for Contemporary Art, Kitakyushu, Japan. She has had solo shows at Anton Kern Gallery, New York, and the Project Room of the Santa Monica Museum of Art. Her work was also featured in the noted group exhibition THING: New Sculpture from Los Angeles (Hammer Museum, 2005). Schnitger lives and works in Los Angeles.
