Artist Statement/ Biography

Kara's practice is particularly concerned with armature – the underlying structure that holds the flesh of a body in place. She uses photography, sculpture, and site-specific interventions to think about precarity and brokenness within these systems of structural support through engagement with architecture, urban infrastructure, and systems of institutional and political power.


Kara Springer is a visual artist and industrial designer. Of Bajan and Jamaican parentage, she was born in Barbados and grew up in Southern Ontario, Canada.
