Work from her oeuvre.
“…The focus of her artistic endeavor is an immense research project: by means of enquiring into the social history and art of the late 1960s and early 1970s, she relates the latter to the present and lends it greater depth. Here, she is as much interested in popular literature and the most popular avant-garde magazines of that period as she is in its architecture, music, art and design. For her, the former mark the influential and lasting social changes of that era, as evidenced, for example in the women’s movement, the peace movement, the notion of liberated sexuality and the liberation of the individual through both psychological and physical practices of consciousness expanding.
In her exhibitions, Carol Bove forges atmospherically charged installations with artifacts and reconstructive creations that echo and convey the style and history of that period, as well as identifying its current validity…” – Georg Kargl Gallery
