Kiah Pullens is a photographic artist based in Naarm. Kiah’s expanded photographic practice focuses on the image making process, rather than the image taking process. Utilising the colour darkroom as her medium, the large-scale works she produces are derived from a performance within the darkroom space, intrinsically linked to the performing body and its relationship to the printing process.
Kiah graduated from the VCA with a BFA, Honours in 2019 and has exhibited works nationally and internationally. Her works have been seen at the Ian Potter Museum of Art, Museum of Australian Photography and Perth Institute for Contemporary Art. She was a finalist in Arte Laguna Prize, Venice, 2021 and presented work as a part of PHOTO2021 and Rotterdam Photo festival, 2019.
Kiah is the Director and Founder of Wetlab — Naarm’s first open access colour darkroom.
