Paola Carbone - Geneva, CH

A Uruguayan artist who currently lives and works in Geneva, Paola Carbone is with us in July to continue her exploration of sound & story.

Rooted in themes of memory, Paola finds inspiration in real memories and invented stories which she translates into paintings, installations and mixed media textiles; employing a combination of embroidery and patchwork to create visually descriptive versions of these personal and verbal accounts.

Through a love of working with other people, in 2008 Carbone co-founded the collective Les Chiens Fous (a collective of visual artists who focus their work around publishing) and in 2016 she created Association 14 in order to promote collaborative exchange through the welcoming of visiting artists in Geneva, providing accommodation and networking opportunities with local artists and musicians.
