Colombia-born, Taiwan-based curator and artist, a queer multimedia poet, experimental filmmaker (DIY video artist), and photographer, J Triangular's art projects speak about resistance, gender dynamics, memory landscapes and cosmic symbolism through expanded cinema. Her works are poetic portraits of the unresolved social violence history and the rupture of identity in a culture of manufactured fear and legally institutionalized discriminations. Her work consistently addresses themes including music, cutting-edge performance, community identity, self-empowerment, and care practices. Social transformation and collective action with the use of accessible technologies; camcorder activism. Promoting communication and links of solidarity. Her work has been exhibited internationally in various art spaces, the most recent at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco and this December at the Whitney Museum of Art, New York.
