Translations:Marta María Pérez/2/en
Marta María Pérez Bravo is a Cuban artist born in Havana in 1959. Through photography and video, she has investigated the ritual practices of Afro-Cuban traditions and their relationships with language and the body. Her work is in dialogue with performance, as her body has been a fundamental element in both her photographic and moving-image projects, which are in the cast of self-portraits. From her youth she has been one of the most influential contemporary Cuban artists in her own country and internationally, which is evident in her works’ appearance in exhibitions and the collections of numerous museums.
