Carolina Caycedo:

Birdsongs String Bulletin (Periódico de Cordel)

Image

January 19 - March 3, 2019
Sheffer/Scheffler Arts Education Space


Carolina Caycedo addresses contexts and communities affected by developmental infrastructure, in particular water rights and access for under-served communities.

Her project, Birdsongs String Bulletin (Periódico de Cordel), invites the public to use strings installed in the Scheffer/Scheffler Arts Education Space as a bulletin to hang testimonies or narrations around environmental memory.

Carolina Caycedo's artistic practice has a collective dimension 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. Through work that investigates relationships of movement, assimilation and resistance, representation and control, Caycedo addresses contexts, groups and communities that are affected by developmental projects, extractivism, and environmental injustice.

She has developed publicly engaged projects and exhibited worldwide including Sao Paulo, Berlin, New Museum, Havana, Whitney, Venice, and Istanbul biennials. In 2012, Caycedo was a DAAD Artist-in-Berlin resident. She 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. She is Colombian, UK born, and lives in Los Angeles.
