Artist biography

Working in endlessly new and innovative mediums, Camila Cañeque’s artwork aims to reflect the infeasibility of meaningful action. Questioning the preconceived notions of the influence of the individual, she explains that her work is “conceived as an art of inaction.” Through mixed mediums and an interdisciplinary approach; her installations, performance, writing, and videos underline a condition of irreversibility and open the door to a sense of personal and individual responsibilities.
