My first contact with Karilee Fuglem’s installation art was in the early 2000.  A few years later I had the pleasure of interviewing Karilee for a research project I was working on at the time. Most interesting was her approach stemming from “the desire to make that which I cannot say or write.” Her interests lie in what is beyond our direct perceptions, our firm grasp of understanding.

“I use everyday, devalued materials, refiguring them into less familiar contexts and forms, building numerous test pieces in my studio while working towards specific sites upon which the work impinges, like infestations, or fleshily mimics.”

Her art becomes a kind of evidence affirming the existence of the non-visible and unquantifiable aspects of the human condition.
