Karen Thảo La, Vietnamese-Canadian, b. 1988, Vancouver; lives and works in Ho Chi Minh City.
Perpetually un/learning. On a journey of unveiling silence and finding peace. Intuitively moving—with unbound output; taking non-specified forms.
Lòng vòng trong học–học lại. Trên hành trình khám phá sự im lặng và tìm kiếm bình yên. Di chuyển vô thức—những sáng tạo không bị đóng khung; cùng những bản dạng không rõ ràng.
In 2019, she was an artist in residence at A.Farm: a collaborative project between the Nguyen Art Foundation, Mot+++ and Sàn Art in Ho Chi Minh City. La holds a BFA in Visual Art & Art History from the University of British Columbia and further studied / practiced Jewelry Art & Design.
Between late 2019 to early 2021, La was the managing director at Que by Kaarem in Bình Thạnh, HCMC. In partnership with the founders, La built and facilitated an environment to create connection and conversation through craft, design and food in Vietnam and beyond.
