Carol Bove

b. 1971, Switzerland

Carol Bove is known for her simple yet intricate assemblages of found and made objects. Carefully arranged on pedestals, elevated platforms, or directly against walls and ceilings, these yield unexpected, poetic, and multi- layered meanings, which seem to derive from the composition of the objects rather than the inherent substance of the individual components. Using a wide range of materials, including books, driftwood, peacock feathers, metal, concrete, foam, and loans from other artists, Bove’s works are subtle assemblages resisting categorization despite their determined relationships with Modernist display methods.

Born in 1971 in Geneva to American parents, Bove was raised in Berkeley, California, and studied at New York University. Her work is co-represented by David Zwirner in partnership with Maccarone in an innovative model in which the two New York galleries collaborate to help the artist realize future projects and exhibitions both in the United States and abroad.
