Minia Biabiany

Minia Biabiany (born 1988 in Guadeloupe, lives and works between Mexico City and Guadeloupe) is a visual artist and free researcher in pedagogy. Through her work—between video, installation and poetic writing—, she questions colonial structures within the territory, the body and the language regarding Caribbean subjectivities. Biabiany focuses on the perceptions of the environment, the language structures, and how from the body converge experiences, memories, and temporalities that reconfigure the ways of being, learning to listen to the wind, devour the earth and look through words.
