Nayra Martín Reyes, 1979 Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Spain). Based in Ghent (Belgium) and Tenerife (Spain).
A study contrasting contemporary values with mortal sin, Nayra Martín Reyes’ recent work has seen her satirizing the allure of ambition, pride and vanity. With a creativity fuel by a mantra of provocation and protest, her work comprises many disciplines yet all with the single aim of creating an environment for realistic social and political change. Currently focusing on performance and installation, in the coming months she’ll be featuring at the BOZAR (Brussels) and at the Belgian Biennale of Painting in the MuDeL museum, Deinze. Her projects have been shown in numerous and important exhibitions notably: Unstable. Monumento en vi-vo at 12Registros (Monterrey/Mexico), The Roots of Hope. 1936-2016 at the Sala MAC (Tenerife) and Salon Sauvage. Les Noirs in Ghent (Belgium).
