Kiyo Gutiérrez, 2021
Kiyo Gutiérrez is a Mexican performance artist based in Guadalajara. Ecofeminist, provocative, earthy, and political, she places her body into the ruptures opened up by instability, precarity, and pollution. She also draws on other mediums such as video, dance, poetry, sculpture, and sound. Her art seeks to fulfill performance art’s potential as a tool of resistance and strives to dissolve the cultural taboos constructed under a patriarchal system, hoping to eroding preconceived notions of nature, culture, gender, identity, sexuality, and art, in order to generate and disseminate discussions on complex social realities.
