An Island Giving Birth to Islands
Minia Biabiany is a visual artist based in Mexico city and Guadeloupe. Her work proceeds from an investigation on the perception of space to the paradigms of weaving and opacity in storytelling and language. In her practice she deconstructs narratives linked with colonial presence and heritages in the Guadeloupean territory. She initiated the artistic and pedagogical collective project Semillero Caribe in 2016 and continues today with the ongoing project Doukou, to explore pedagogical decolonial practices with the body and from concepts of Caribbean authors.
