Les Artistes

"Obsession" january - march 2015 

Born in France in 1971, she lives and works in the USA.

Karine Laval’s artistic practice encompasses photography and video. Her still and moving images often challenge the familiar perception we have of the world, and can be seen as a bridge between the world we live in and a surreal, dreamlike dimension. Her works explore time, place, memory and perception where genres such as narrative and performance are expanded through visual and temporal transformations of represented reality. More recently, she moved away from figuration and narration towards abstraction and the deconstruction of representation. She has also integrated digital technologies in her process as a way to explore the limits of the medium and to engage a dialog with other mediums such as painting, moving images and performance.
