Karla Ekaterine Canseco’s practice explores care, love, and violence through different mediums, particularly clay and performance. She is drawn to how matter carries information that has been passed down and is present; Our bodies collapse conceptions of time and hold stories in the same manner clay transcribes in its composition and impression, like a cannibalization of touch. In making she invites her history within, daydreams, and poetics to materialize into sculptures forming her personal and shared mythologies. She is interested in how her inherited mythologies are dislocated from time allowing them to continuously unfold. She is currently conjuring a militia of canines, guards and guides of love.
