Artist Talk with Karine Giboulo

Thu October 20, 2022 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join artist Karine Giboulo and exhibition curator Karine Tsoumis for a discussion on the themes and stories that unfold in Giboulo’s playful yet urgent new exhibition Housewarming.

About the Exhibition

Enter a world at once familiar and uncanny. Montreal-based artist Karine Giboulo invites visitors into an immersive reimagining of her home. Brought to life by over 500 miniature polymer clay figures, this is no ordinary house. Born of the COVID-19 pandemic, Housewarming is a sculpted documentary of individual and collective experiences grounded in current events. The colourful dioramas furnishing each room prompt reflection about the challenges we face as a society, including connectedness and isolation, aging and care, labour and consumerism, the climate crisis, food insecurity, and housing instability.
