We met Minia Biabiany during her show in Brussels and we talked about her projects and practice.
Minia Biabiany is a French artist, born in Guadeloupe, she lives and works between Mexico City and Guadeloupe. She uses the layering and the fragmentation of narrations framed in context of the Caribbean to build ephemeral poetics of forms. She observes the interrelation between colonialism, the action of weaving and the notion of territory in oral and written languages.
She initiates the artistic and pedagogical collective project Semillero Caribe in 2016 and continues with the ongoing project Doukou to explore decolonial pedagogical practices with the body and from concepts of Caribbean authors.
Her work has been shown in the 10th Berlin Biennial, TEOR/éTica in Costa Rica, Witte de Witt in Rotterdam, Cráter Invertido in Mexico, Prix Sc Po 2019 in Paris, SIGNAL in Malmö.
