Florence Lazar

Florence Lazar is a French filmmaker and visual artist. For the past 20 years, her videos, photographs, and art installations have been shown in museums and contemporary art centers in France and abroad. In 2019, the Jeu de Paume museum devoted a solo exhibition to her. She has been teaching at the college of art and design of Grenoble-Valence since 2005.
Her work focuses on revealing the emergence of a word, the gestures of an individual in a particular geographical and social context. Historical inquiry and historical transmission are the principal vectors of her work.
Her documentary films construct narratives in which subjective narratives unfold in the face of the authority of history.
