BIOGRAFI

Karoline H Larsen (f. 1974) er kunstner baseret i København, Danmark. Uddannet fra Det Kongelige Kunstakademi i København 2003. Larsen arbejder i performances, installationer og permanente kommissioner, hendes kunstneriske praksis bruger social genopdagelse, deltagelse, proces & personlig udvikling som motor for nye sfærer i fysisk og mental udforskning. Larsen skaber et uformelt rum, der fusionerer det offentlige rum til et semi-offentligt eller endda privat rum med sit arbejde, der udbreder sig i mange forskellige former. Fokus ligger på den immaterielle krop af arbejde, der genereres ud fra disse undersøgelser. Altid generøst deler hun sin praksis med offentligheden og skaber så varierede værker som:

– Opdag din by, en kunststi i Værebro Park og Bagsværd, hvor børn har fået kunst, de klatrer på og mødes ved. Sammen med kunstrepræsentanterne fra fem lokale børneinstitutioner, har Larsen skabt idéen om en ZigZag-bro, en Cirkelbro og en Cirkelsti i området, som ikke bare fysisk binder området sammen, men som også er med til at danne venskaber og samarbejde på tværs af børnehusene, som en del af et stort samfundsbaseret projekt finansieret af Statens Kunstfond.
