Kaila Bhullar (she/they) is an interdisciplinary artist and experimental filmmaker based out of the stolen traditional territories of three Local First Nations: the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) tribes.
Bhullar specializes in editing, photography, mixed media, and audiovisual work. With a particular interest in abstraction and digitally-based art forms, they use art-making as an introspective tool that explores various internal dispositions concerning identity and the positionings of our physical bodies. As a queer and biracial individual, they are interested in analyzing cultural binaries and norms, using their practice as a vessel to bridge the gaps within the complexities of personal identity; as well as contextualizing feelings of disconnect and dissociation that arise as an extension of these investigations. These inquiries into the self often manifest as collages of varying forms and multimedia installations.
