Artist Statement

Karolina Lavergne is a video artist and writer based in Los Angeles. She has an MFA in Graduate Fine Art from ArtCenter College of Design, Pasadena, CA. Karolina’s work explores the domestic as a sphere that is both a refuge and a trap, and in which desire is inseparable from struggle. She also uses gender as a lens through which to think through the hidden, reproductive labor of caring for oneself and others, house work, and the maternal. As a way of working, she sources her life as material, blurring the line between fiction and autobiography, construction, persona, exaggeration, truth, and lie.
