Carolina CHOCRON

1969, Buenos Aires - Argentina
Lives and works in Buenos Aires
Represented by TOBE Gallery since 2016
  • Carolina Chocron is a collage artist that creates small worlds of juxtapositions, sometimes easily complimentary, sometimes difficultly contrasting. She stretches her compositions between the absurd and the amusing, from social questioning to reportage. Collage and photomontage have always been used as a tool in which to reflect on the social mores of the contemporary, that that tool is still alive, vibrant, and dynamic in the twenty-first century, says much about the continuing relevance of the discipline itself, but says much more about the artists that use it.
