Statement

Nayda Collazo-Llorens, born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, is a visual artist working in various media, including drawings, prints, video and installation works.  Her work examines the way in which we perceive and process information, dealing with navigation, memory, language, hyperconnectivity and noise.  It reflects on the complexities of our minds and the way we try to cope with a complex world in an age that is as much about data overload and hyperconnectivity as it is about distancing and dissociation.

Recent projects include a site-specific multi-channel video installation titled Reverberación (Reverberation) at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Puerto Rico, San Juan, PR, 2010; the solo exhibition titled ESC at LMAKprojects, New York, NY, 2009;  ESCaperucita & Little Flying Hood, a multi-disciplinary project produced for the 10th Havana Biennial, Havana, Cuba, 2009;  Onda (Wave), a permanent public art work at the University of Puerto Rico in San Juan, 2010;  and Beyond the Triangle, a series of site-specific installations exhibited at the Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh, PA, 2009-10 and 80WSE Galleries, New York, NY, 2011.  She received an MFA from New York University, New York, NY in 2002 and a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, MA in 1990.  Her work has been reviewed in The New York Times, Art Net, Art US, Art Nexus, and Art News, among others.
