Caroline Bergvall, artist and writer based in London. Works across artforms, media and languages. A strong exponent of writing methods adapted to contemporary audiovisual and multilingual and other contextual concerns.

Projects alternate between textual pieces, audioworks, visual textworks, installations, and live performances, often in collaboration. Most recently: Tate Modern (London), Khoj Centre (New Delhi), Fondation Vuitton (Paris), Mamco Museum (Geneva). Latest project Drift (Nightboat, 2014). Current project, Raga Dawn, an outdoors vocal performance being composed for Summer 2016. Awarded a Mellon Collaborative Fellowship, Gray Center for Art and Enquiry, University of Chicago, 2016.
