Kristina Corre is a Filipina-Canadian artist whose meditative collage works explore cultural and personal identity. Formally trained in architecture, Kristina's education at the Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism at Carleton University instilled in her a meticulousness of 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, are what currently drive her practice of handcut, minimalist found-image and object collage.
Kristina is represented by Studio Sixty Six in Ottawa. Her work has also been exhibited at Pineapple Lab (Poblacion, Metro Manila), #Hashtag Gallery (Toronto), Possible Worlds (Ottawa), the Chinatown Remixed Festival (Ottawa), The Philippine Embassy in Ottawa, and the Ottawa City Hall Art Gallery. As part of her practice, Kristina finds great joy in sharing her love for collage through workshops and has facilitated collage sessions at various venues, including the National Gallery of Canada. In 2018 Kristina received a grant from the City of Ottawa’s Creation and Production Fund for her Arrivants project - an extension of the works shown in Gatherers to further explore stories of migration and identity within Ottawa's various Filipinx communities.
