Her works have toured Europe and South America. Her latest creations explore the notion of body migration in time and space, sometimes associating professional artists with non-professionals.

Karin Elmore provokes encounters, about the visible to the non-visible, the audible to the non-audible, the memory and the suggestion. His work questions the theme of "artistic creation" and its place in society, as well of concepts of time and space.

Her pieces have been moving away in recent years in spectacular forms, opting for constructions and installations that intervene in spaces such as galleries, museums, houses or streets.

Her works have been presented in museums, theaters and international festivals such as Linz Ars Electrónica, East West Festival in Rovereto, National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome; Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome; Chateauvallon Festival in France; National Center of the Arts of Mexico; Dance Theater Workshop in New York; The Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid, Panorama Festival of Rio de Janeiro, among others.
