Artist’s Statement

In her practice Minia Biabiany uses the deconstruction of narratives in installations, videos and drawings, by building up efimeral poetics of forms in relation with colonial presences, past or present. Her work proceeds from an investigation on the perception of space an dof the paradigm of weaving in language. She initiated the artistic and pedagogical collective project semillero Caribe in 2016 in Mexico City and continue to explore the deconstruction of narratives with the body and concepts from Caribbean authors with the experimental platform Doukou. Minia Biabiany works and lives between Mexico city and Guadeloupe.

Her work has been shown in the Xth Biennale de Berlin, TEOR/éTica in Costa Rica, Witte de Wite in Rotterdam, Cràter Invertido and Bikini Wax in Mexico, Prix Sc Po 2019 in Paris, SIGNAL in Malmö...
