Christa Holka is an American artist who lives and works in London. Her work focuses on documenting and archiving the communities in which she exists. From portraits of friends and
peers, to images of her everyday life and the high-energy club nights she frequents, to directed cinematic narratives, to film and television stills, Holka’s work is combination of intention and chance, observation and participation, engagement and distraction, contributing to a living record of a particular time and place while exploring personal narrative, memory, identity, self-representation and art practice.
Christa has exhibited work in galleries in the U.S., London, Berlin and Athens. Her work has also been featured on PBS.org’s Art:21 blog. She has also given artist talks about her work at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, the Tate Modern, London and at Union Docs in Brooklyn, New York.
