Artist Statement

I was born in 1978 in Zaza del Medio, in the province of Santi Spiritu, Cuba. I graduated from the Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA) in Havana in 2002. I live and work in Havana and New York. I was awarded the UNESCO Prize for the Promotion of the Arts as part of Galería DUPP during the VIII Bienal de La Habana. I had the scholarship of John Simon Guggenheim in 2006 in New York and I was awarded the Cartier Foundation Award in London in 2008. My recent solo exhibitions include: ‘The View of the Garden of Helene Hollandt’ in Kunstverein Braunschweig (Braunschweig, 2014), ‘Speaking Badly about Stones’ in SMAK (Gent, 2014), ‘Balancing the Curve’ in HangarBicocca (Milan, 2012), ‘Tied Up to the Table Leg in CA2M (Madrid, 2011). I have exhibited in events as the Bienal de La Habana in its last editions, the Biennale di Venezia (2007) and the 1st Singapore Biennial (2006).
