Karen Ingham has exhibited at the Berlin, Edinburgh, Sundance and Melbourne film festivals, at the ICA and National Portrait Gallery and the NFT, London. She is an interdisciplinary lens-based artist and is Head of the newly-established Centre For Lens-Based Arts at Swansea Institute. Recent exhibitions have included Death's Witness, an international touring exhibition and publication, and Ha Ha - a Pictorial Folly, for which she wrote and showed work concerned with the various conventions of landscape and its depiction. A compilation of hers, the book Paradise Park dealt with the estates and communities around her place of work. She reflects a post-modern concern with hybridism and for an intersection between theory and practice in her work, which encompasses site-specific installations and temporary public art projects.

Her work is concerned predominantly with two areas: the synthetic landscape and the notion of 'place' and the post-modern body and the discourse between art and anatomy. Her current project, Anatomy Lesson, she calls a "post-modern appropriation" of the canonical Dutch suite of 'Anatomy Lesson' paintings and involves collaboration with the leading centres of European anatomical practice and history: Padova, Edinburgh, Dublin and London.
