Karla Ekatherine Canseco is an interdisciplinary artist based in Los Angeles. Her practice explores the nuances of identity through different mediums, particularly clay and performance. She incorporates the body knowledge that she has inherited from her family as immigrant workers into her work and as an access point to interpreting power dynamics. She is interested in how the body carries information that has been passed down and is present in all movement; She is intrigued by the way the body collapses conceptions of time such as past and present. Karla finds parallels between clay and the body by the way in which they both hold memory/history through impression and in containing what is present in the atmosphere. Her interest in the body’s holding of knowledge is explored through making. Karla reinterprets her own history and translates it through sculptures by merging different symbols that represent her family’s immediate history but also its sociopolitical implications.
