Yaima Carrazana

Cuba | Painting, Spatial, Video | Film

Yaima Carrazana (Santiago de Cuba) moves freely among various media and formats such as painting, video, performance and installation. Throughout this range of media, Carrazana’s work stands out for the way it engages in a highly informed yet frequently irreverent dialogue with the history and discourse of contemporary art. Creating work that explores the unstable limits between what is considered art and what is not, Carrazana weaves a delicate web of commentary on the contexts political, cultural, gender-based – that determine the way art is received and interpreted in today’s globalized art world. Her work has been exhibited in the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum. Ludwigshafen am Rhein, DE in 2012, Kunsthal KAdE. Amersfoort, NL, 2012, 12th Istanbul Biennial in 2011, the Haifa Museum of Modern Art, Mudam-Luxembourg, the Fondation Cartier, the 2011 Liverpool Biennial, the 2008 Gwangju Biennial and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, JP. In 2010 she completed two years residency program at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Amsterdam. Yaima Carrazana lives and works in Amsterdam.
