Carmen Perrin is born in La Paz, Bolivia. In 1981, she graduates from Geneva’s Superior School of Fine Arts and in 1986 starts teaching in the institution. In 1993, she is given the Bourse Landys et Gyr scholarship so she can live and occupy an art studio for one year in London. Now, she lives and works in Geneva and regularly occupies an art studio in France. Since the 1980’s, Carmen Perrin established herself as a visual artist creating sculptures. In the 1990’s she started creating works increasingly related with architectural and landscape contexts. In 2005, she decides to stop teaching to dedicate herself entirely to her artistic research. She is currently working on projects related with public spaces and pursues in her studio a research in the close articulation between sculpture and drawing practices.
