After studying qualitative trend research in Barcelona Klara moved to The Netherlands where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (ArtScience at The Royal Academy of Arts). At the same time she studied Psychology at the Open University of Catalonia. Klara is the co-founder of the Smell Lab, a community project that focuses on the investigation and practice of the art and science of the sense of smell. During 2016-2017 she is an artist in residency at Mediamatic and in 2017 she teamed up with the Intitution for Art and Olfaction to co-produce the first Experimental Scent Summit, hosted in Berlin. By opposing the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, she absorbs the tradition of remembrance art into daily practice.
