Artist

Karina Griffith

Karina Griffith’s installations and work with the moving image challenge notions of identity and belonging. Her films explore the themes of fear and fantasy, often focussing on how they relate to identity and the immigrant perspective. By juxtaposing seemingly different documentary footage, she creates contrasts that explore personal phobias to expose the universality of alienation. Her work has screened at festivals, and been exhibited at museums and galleries in North America and Europe. In 2014, Galerie Myrtis named her one of the “International Artist to Watch”.
