Kristina Corre is a Filipina-Canadian artist whose meditative collage works explore cultural and personal identity. As a life-long imaginer of new worlds, she earned her Bachelor of Architectural Studies and Master of Architecture degrees from the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism at Carleton University.
Beyond the history, theory, and practice of architecture, Kristina’s education instilled in her a meticulousness in her craft, a love of materiality, and the importance of narrative in image-making. These three paramount lessons combined with her explorations into the social, aesthetic, and artistic unpacking of what it means to take up space currently drive her practice of handcut, minimalist found-image and object collage.
Kristina is represented by commercial art gallery Studio Sixty Six in Ottawa. Beyond Studio Sixty Six, Kristina’s work has been exhibited at Pineapple Lab (Poblacion, Metro Manila), #Hashtag Gallery (Toronto), Possible Worlds (Ottawa), Carleton University Art Gallery (Ottawa), the Chinatown Remixed Festival (Ottawa), and the Ottawa City Hall Art Gallery. As part of her practise, Kristina finds great joy in sharing her love for collage and has given workshops at all of the venues above and also at the National Gallery of Canada. In 2018 Kristina received a grant from the City of Ottawa’s Creation and Production Fund for Professional Artists for her Arrivants project - an exploration of migration stories and experiences of Filipinos in Ottawa.
