About the artist


Karen Paulina Biswell

Born in 1983 in Colombia. Lives and works in France and Colombia.

Her parents who emigrated to Paris escaped 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.

“I treated art as the supreme reality and life as a mere mode of fiction.”
– Oscar Wilde

Label Dalbin, Paris

Label Dalbin established in Paris in 2003 by Eric Dalbin, soon joined by Laurent Baylet, develops hybrid projects.

Label Dalbin produces videos, installations and performances at the interface between music and the visual arts for cultural institutions and private collections. What is original about this approach lies in the very nature of the collaboration here between visual artists and composers, who join forces to form a tightly-knit team that meets and discusses, writes, composes and records an original work together. This unity of time, place and action allows for the exploration of a new musical-visual idiom that blurs conventional boundaries between the genres, for the only thing that really counts is the creative process itself. The meaning of each work, in other words, lies in a meeting of minds between the artists: a shared experience that is uniquely and intimately theirs and has the power to profoundly alter each artist’s approach. Co-creation is the work.
