Carmen Argote
Mexican, b. 1981

Carmen Argote transforms the myths, architecture, and landscape of Los Angeles into mixed media, surrealist-inflected objects and sculptures, performances, photographs, and installation works. “In my work, I use historical fragments, stories, personal experience, and imagination to create a layered picture of the past, the present, and the imagined stories in-between,” she has said. “From apartment layouts to amusement parks, my interest in the construction of memory as it relates to site incorporates the idea of the footprint, the mental imprint, the ghost story, and the lingering presence or haunting of a place.” Argote pursues the poetic dimensions of everyday space, particularly the forgotten histories that encode themselves in architecture, objects, and interiors.
