Carol Bove

°1971, Geneva (CH) - lives and works in New York (US)

Using a wide range of materials (e.g. books, driftwood, peacock feathers, metal, concrete, foam, and loans from other artists), Carol Bove’s works are simple yet intricate assemblages of found and made objects with a strong reference to modernist display methods. In this sense, the composition of the objects rather than the inherent substance of the individual components seems to yield unexpected, poetic, and multi-layered meanings. Furthermore Bove describes herself as an anthropologist who combines autobiographical experiences with universally valid social phenomena, transferring them into new systems of interrelation.

Carol Bove's work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at prominent institutions that include MoMA, New York; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; and Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston. Major group exhibitions include Documenta 13, Kassel, Germany in 2012; the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011; and the Whitney Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York in 2008.

Work by the artist is represented in permanent collections worldwide, including MoMA, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais, Dunkerque.
