Descripción del Artista

Born in Mexico and living in Los Angeles, Carmen Argote reflects on concepts of home and space to explore notions of immigrations, place and displacements. Usually working with her family, in this case her sister Alex, Argote creates an inter-dimensional portrait of her and explores, through the objects in her room, her internal universe. As a multidisciplinary artist working in installation, I explore notions of home and place, interacting with architecture to reflect on personal histories and my own immigrant experience. I work with places and materials that surround me, utilizing local resources as points to expand from. My practice uses the act of inhabiting as a starting point, allowing the work to take form as I respond to a space, materials and ideas developing from my own experiences and relationships to a site. I work from an intimate and personal place, using shared experiences to connect the spaces that house us to notions of home and self. Often working with family, I explore our common immigrant experience as a layered, multigenerational, transnational experience that is echoed though shared memories, traumas, and aspirations, extending outward from the intimate space of home. Architecture for me exists apart from the physical structure, in familial myth, in class structures, in shapes, and as an imprint acting upon the body. My interest in the shape of spaces and in the layout as a visual language for expression developed in childhood from looking at my father’s architectural drawings of houses he wanted to build.
