Imayna Caceres 

(b. Callao, Peru) is an artist, writer, researcher, who is interested in the makings of communities in more-than-human worlds, who engages with forms of knowledge that exceed modernity and Western knowledge. Her artistic practice and research leans towards art as a communal and collective process. She works with ritual and relational practices, digital and analog drawing, projects in public space, video, and writing. She engages in her work, her experience with modes of being in the worlds she is related to in Peru and Austria (particularly growing up in urban areas of the dessertic central coast, inheriting practices from the oriental tropical Andes and daily interactions in the NordbahnhofgelĂ€nde in Vienna to the beings which inhabit these areas). In previous projects, she has worked with the reverberations of the work of Gloria AnzaldĂșa, decolonial strategies and anticolonial fantasies in the etnographic museum and in the art academy, and critical perspectives on colonialism and migration. In her latest projects she engages with the worlds of the underground, of roots and of darkness, as well as the teachings and conversations with plants.
