Minia Biabiany

Minia Biabiany's (1988, Guadeloupe, FWI) work derives from the intertwining of present colonial realities and past memories, their poetics, and an observation of the exhibition space. She builds a Caribbean imaginary that questions reoccurring notions of interior and exterior. The materiality and historical charge generate fragmented narratives that are constituted by the relations between the elements involved in her installations. Her work has been shown at TEOR/éTica, San José Costa Rica; South London Gallery, London; Cráter Invertido and Bikini Wax, Mexico city; S!GNAL, Malmö. In 2016, she initiated the pedagogical and artistic project Semillero Caribe: an experimental seminar based on exercises with the body and drawing engaging with concepts of Caribbean thinkers.
