Terra Continens, 2014

A plurality of different material and functional beginnings metamorphose into different states, changed conditions and varied modalities. The standing objects are in uninterrupted dialogue with their environs, drawing meaning from their surroundings while simultaneously altering their very parameters. Each individual piece, restructured and reformed by hand, bears the imprint of a multitude of gestures, lived experiences and narratives, evoked with every interaction and following transformation. Carwan Gallery has commissioned many works to Karen in the past four years and exhibited her work in more than ten international art and design fairs as well as curated exhibitions.
