Carol Bove was born in 1971, Geneva, Switzerland.
Bove is a New-York City based artist and collector. She lives and works in Brooklyn.
Using a wide range of materials, including books, driftwood, peacok feathers, metal, concrete, foam, and loans from others artists, Bove's work includes drawings and installations which concern the social, politic and artistic movements of the 1960s and 1970s.
Ink drawings of nude women taken from Playboy magazines from this time period, or inspired by a vintage Newsweek picture of Twiggy, or sculptures made up of bookshelves with books from the same time are examples of Bove's work.
