Biography

Claudia Martínez Garay’s works often reflect on indigenous artifacts, particularly from pre-Columbian cultures, and the ways that colonialist views engender false cultural narratives. Her research-based practice culminates in layered mixed-media installations that expose the violence and power struggles behind the creation of history. Martínez Garay has been featured in the Istanbul Biennial and the Ural Industrial Biennial of Contemporary Art, and won the Emerging Artist Award from the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation in 2019. For her first solo show in the Netherlands, “A las revoluciones, como a los árboles, se les reconoce por sus frutos,” in November 2019 at GRIMM, she transformed the space into an ever-changing installation that addressed the aftermath of colonialism in her native Peru. Martínez Garay is featured in The Artsy Vanguard 2020.
