Carolina Caycedo is a London-born Colombian artist, living in Los Angeles. Caycedo’s artistic practice has a collective dimension to it in which performances, drawings, photographs and videos are not just an end result, but rather part of the artist’s process of research and acting. Her work contributes to the construction of environmental historical memory and generates debate about the future in relation to everyday goods, environmental justice, fair energy transition and cultural biodiversity.
She has held residencies at The Huntington Gardens, Libraries and Art Collections in San Marino, and California DAAD artists-in-Berlin programme, amongst others. Caycedo has received funding from Creative Capital, California Community Foundation, Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, Harpo Foundation, Art Matters, Colombian Culture Ministry, Arts Council UK, and Prince Claus Fund.
