BIOGRAPHY

Originally from BC and living in Montreal since 1989, Karilee Fuglem makes art that is informed by a heightened sensitivity to the subtleties of nonverbal communication that underscores life in a bilingual city. Sometimes constructed with thread nearly as invisible as the space it describes, or familiar materials made magical by being reimagined, her artwork speaks a subterranean language of light, movement and visceral sensation, informed by a deeply considered understanding of the environment in which it is situated.

She has had solo exhibitions at Pierre-François Ouellette art contemporain in 2002, 2005 and 2008, at the Two Rivers Gallery (2010), MacLaren Gallery (2009), Koffler Gallery (2008)Montreal's Darling Foundry (2006); Oakville Galleries, Ontario (2003), Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Lethbridge (2001) and Optica, Montreal (1996). Her work has also been seen in group exhibitions across Canada, notably, the Musée de Rimouski, La Manif, Quebec (1999), the Montreal Biennale (2011, 1998) as well as the National Gallery of Canada (2007), The Musée National des beaux-arts du Québec (2010, 2004) and the Musée d'art contemporain de Montreal (1997), who also have her work in their collections. In 2010 she was a finalist for the Prix Louis-Comtois. In 2012, she finished a large-scale architectural intervention The Wieght of Light at the Cirque du Soleil international headquarters.
