Carolina Caycedo

Lives in Los Angeles, USA


Carolina Caycedo is a London-born Colombian multidisciplinary artist known for her performances, videos, artist’s books, sculptures, and installations that examine environmental and social issues. Caycedo’s artistic practice has a collective dimension to it in which works of art are not just an end result, but rather part of the artist’s process of research and acting. Her work contributes to the construction of environmental historical memory, as a fundamental element for non-repetition of violence against human and non-human entities. She participates in movements of territorial resistance, solidarity economies, and housing as a human right; and works with groups and communities affected by extractivist projects involving the construction of dams and the privatization of bodies of water to generate debate about environmental justice.
