"I am attracted to the willingness expressed by certain women in regards to their own bodies and their varied and complex natures. This mysteriousness is what I am interested in, their power and ints manifestation. Ellas is a research about the subject of femininity, looking into different aspects as desire, forbidden, nature and female sexuality."
Karen Paulina Biswell was born in 1983 to Colombian parents who emigrated to Paris escaping the extreme political violence of the early 90’s. Her varied oeuvre – which is consistently defying definition – is drawn to subjects of vulnerability morality and human fate. She is committed to capturing the lesser known aspects of contemporary life, the invisible and defiant elements of society, taking a deep interest in extreme states and the depths of the human mind and experience.
