Jeanette Chavez | Cuba

Born in Havana, Cuba,
Lives & works in Germany
Installation, sculpture, video, performance

The relationship between the action, the artist and the audience interests me. To me it is a perfect triangle in which all the energies are centered on an idea: “change”, and if you succeed in changing or stimulating the sensitivity of another individual, it is when art is useful, and that is what really interests me, the usefulness of art as a changing being, carrier of energies in different spaces.

Graduated from the Academia de Arte San Alejandro (2004) and from the Instituto de Arte (2009)of Havana, Cuba.

During her training, she attends the workshop « Arte de Conducta » led by Cuban artist Tania Bruguera.
