Since the 2000s, inspired by modernism, with a great feel for color and appreciation for applied art history, the artist has developed a hauntingly graphic painting style that keeps challenging the origin and use of shape.

For this exhibition, which she entitled Arlequine (Miss Harlequin), Karina Bisch has chosen to display some of her more recent work in an original setting. The venue’s walls will entirely be covered by a 70-meter-long canvas, painted in black and white patterns, plunging visitors into a total universe. Window-like openings within the canvas will reveal color paintings. In the middle of this space, six characters are dressed in outfits created by the artist. Like spectators in a show, they animate the exhibition space, effectively transforming it into a theater.

Works by Karina Bisch have been exhibited in France, Europe and the United States, and are included in public collections such as the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris and Frac Aquitaine. After graduating from École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris, in 2000 and being a resident at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam, in 2005 and 2006, Karina Bisch has developed an artistic vocabulary that draws extensively from the worlds of art, fashion and dance: she reinterprets this imagery by combining it in creative and unexpected ways.
