Kaari Upson was born in 1972 in the United States. She lives and works in Los Angeles.

She exhibited at the Venice Art Biennale, in the central pavilion of the Giardini, a work called “View From The Interiorized; You Are The Pervert” (2016-2019).

For Kaari Upson, drawing is the Alpha and Omega of her art.

His large drawings, very detailed and seemingly chaotic, actually incorporate a kind of mental map.

In her drawings, which she often makes over several years, she mixes texts and images as if she were writing, drawing her ideas on a notepad.

In her work exhibited at the Biennale d’Art, she uses an obsessive visual language that opposes the preconceived ideas that the viewer might have about a stereotype of a woman who is worried and full of problems.

This is more precisely the daughter-mother relationship, explicitly referred to by the words “And Hers and Hers and Hers” repeated several times.

The will to be able to take charge of itself: “Desire of Controlling Environment”, “a dolls house”, “the unconsoul mind can only wish”, “there is no such thing as outside”, “trauma merge”, “filiation maintain, convulsive”, “you for me in mine”, “the space reconstructed...”.

Words that cross out “scratch” the repeated female faces of the girl and her mother.
