Ana Karkar, Return From Exile - Experimental film

Paris Exhibition Artist Film
6 Oct 2022

Galerie Marguo is pleased to present Return From Exile, a suite of new works by French-American artist Ana Karkar. On view from 15 October to 19 November 2022, this marks the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery on the occasion of the first edition of Paris+ by Art Basel. 


Comprising 13 canvases ranging from intimate to monumental scales, the melting and distorted figures painted within are largely inspired by cult films like the Italian giallos of the 1970s (Suspiria) and Brian de Palma's deliberately outrageous, garish films (Carrie), and by pornographic images, similar to those that invaded San Francisco during the artist’s adolescence.
