Minerva Cueva | Author: Minerva Cueva

Minerva Cueva's aesthetic practice can be situated at the interface between political action and exercises of social self-determination. Among the central themes she has addressed through her work are the commodification of natural resources all over the world, the social causes and consequences of climate change and the neoliberal mechanisms of power that exist in both the private and public realm.

Cuevas works across a variety of media, including film, performance, installations and murals, whereby the process of conducting research is a key component of her artistic method. In a clear gesture of non-compliance and resistance, she frequently appropriates the language of the establishment, such as institutional branding and commercial advertising. An associative approach to the oeuvre allows interconnections to come to the fore.
