Karen Russo (b.1974,Tel-Aviv, Israel) lives and works in London. Studied BA Fine Art at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem. Russo’s work uses document and narrative in an exploration of how knowledge, perception, and culture intertwine the rational with the obscure. By tracing marginalized practices, obscure phenomena and esoteric forms of knowledge she addresses the legacy of transgressive means for understanding the unseen and the unknown.
