Notes


Lala Meredith-Vula is an artist and professor of art and photography at De Montfort University, Leicester, UK. Born in Sarajevo in 1966 to an Albanian father and English mother, she moved to England at an early age, returning to the Balkans, after graduating from Goldsmiths University (1988) and taking part in ‘Freeze’ Damien Hirst’s landmark exhibition, famous for launching the Young British Artists (YBA). She represented Albania in the 48th Venice Biennale (1999) and participated in documenta 14 in Athens and Kassel (2017). She has exhibited nationally and internationally with many solo shows including: at the Photographers’ Gallery, London; Germany; throughout Italy and Albania. She has also exhibited in many group shows in the UK, USA, China, and Continental Europe. Her most recent exhibition was the result of an artist-in-residency at Fermynwoods Contemporary Art, UK in a collaboration project with Abigail Lane (December 2019 - March 2020). The exhibition went on line at Baby Forest.co after lockdown from the coronavirus epidemic. Lala is in the process of working on a book of her Haystack series, curated by Monika Szewczyk and assisted with an award from the Graham Foundation, Chicago. She has amassed over 4000 images over the past 30 years and is still on-going! Future exhibitions are planned for 2022 in Amsterdam and Vancouver. She will be taking part in PHAIR in Turin, Italy.
