Bio/Statement:

Yanelis Mora Morales mentally maps impossible routes, found paths, and lost ones too. Instead of using canvas as media support, she needs to fragment it, assuming the pieces as mental spaces for survival or ways of finding herself. Since 2003, Morales has acted in plays, radio shows, and television in Cuba and has been awarded three times in the modality of best female performance. In 2017, she began to venture into the world of visual arts, converting her drawings into textiles. As a visual artist, she works mostly with a patchwork technique called Fundación (“paper piecing”), making textile works on small and large format paper.

Notable solo exhibitions include: BÚJULA at Plusartis Space, Madrid (2024); SUPER-OBJECTIVOS at the Kaplan Project Gallery, Palma de Mallorca (2024); Consonancia at Tomás y Valiente Art Center, Madrid (2024);  La Iberoamericana de Alcalá: Mujeres y artes visuales del siglo XXI  at La Universidad de Alcalá, Madrid (2023); and Polen at Plusartis Space, Madrid (2021). Select group shows include: Memoria oculta at the Brownstone Foundation, Paris (2023); AQUÍ at Dagoberto Rodríguez Studio, Madrid (2023); No es no es Cuestión de Azar at Espacio Lobo, Madrid (2022); Concreto at Malafama Studios (ARCO) Madrid (2022); Ellas at Fundación Iberoamérica de Europa, Madrid (2021).
