Cat Lamora (born 1991, Daejeon, Korea) is a Korean-Canadian paper artist based in Toronto. Through the fragile and temporary medium of paper, their work strives to preserve the brief liminal space created at the crossroads of diaspora consciousness, memory, culture, and nostalgia, examining how each lived experience constructs the building blocks of identity.

They are interested in exploring the qualities of ambiguity and disorientation, and the ephemeral events experienced and forgotten that fringes between everyday reality and surreality. In an attempt to embrace the fragile nature of the medium, every installation is assembled, presented, and disassembled differently, just as our memories are changed and re-embedded each time they are recalled.
