About the Artist
Karine Giboulo (b. 1980) is a socially engaged artist originally from Sainte-Émélie-de-l'Énergie and now based in Montréal. A self-taught artist, she started her career as a painter before embracing sculpture. For the past twenty years, she has gained recognition for the creation of miniature dioramas made of polymer clay. Colourful and playful, Giboulo’s visual language attracts viewers of all ages. However, her comic book aesthetic is a strategy to entice us to ponder serious themes. Her work confronts the social and humanitarian challenges of our times, raising ethical questions pertaining to Western ways of life.
Giboulo has presented more than thirty solo exhibitions, including at Art Mûr (Montréal and Leipzig), CIRCA art actuel (Montréal), the McMichael Canadian Art Collection (Kleinburg, ON), the Buffalo Arts Studio (NY) and the Gardiner Museum (Toronto). Her work has been featured in several major group exhibitions across North America and in 2011, she received the prestigious Winifred Shantz Award for Ceramics. Her work can be found in many public and private collections, including the Musée National des beaux-arts de Québec, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, the Royal Bank of Canada, and the Gardiner Museum.
This Artist Talk is kindly supported by Momentum Partnership and Sorbara Law.
