Minia Biabiany - Ritmo volcán
This first meticulous revision of the artistic work by Guadeloupean artist Minia Biabiany points the reasons why her practice has become unavoidable to reflect on the continuous process of Caribbean colonization, by destabilizing colonial structures within the territory, body and language.
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.
Edited by Ana Gabriela García and Jesús A. Villalobos Fuentes.
Texts by Eva Barois De Caevel, Minia Biabiany, Ana Gabriela Garcías, Yina Jiménez Suriel.
