Promotion Marie Curie
Born in 1991 in Casablanca, Morocco. Lives and works between France and Morocco. Lina Laraki graduated in art from Central Saint Martins College of Art, London, in 2014. Her practice moves between visual arts and cinema. She made her first experimental film, The Last Observer, in 2020, then her first fiction film, Halves Through Night, in 2021, at Le Fresnoy – Studio national des arts contemporains. Her work bears on varied subjects such as mysticism, the non-human and invisible forces, while questioning their sensible and sensorial representations in the cinema. In her films she tries to grasp a mystery and subject the viewer to the testing of its elements and thus make them feel its physical and aural materiality.
