Yorely Valero

Bogotá, Colombia, 1992

Lives and works in Ciudad de Mexico

Bogotá, Colombia, 1992. Graduated artist from Universidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano. Lives and works in Mexico City where she takes the Educative Program SOMA.

Her work consists of observing everyday life and its subtle irruptions as the starting point to ask questions about time, natural phenomena, the relation between human scale and its surroundings, and our position in the universe. She is interested in pointing out the poetic power existing in daily life scenarios. She observes routines, routes and identifies patterns in these contexts for later interpretation as objects of thought of issues that are often studied from a scientific field. Through media such as photography, video and art installation, she is interested in creating images, experiences and events that expose all these mentioned interests.

Her work has been worthy of the Scholarship for independent publishing projects of the 45th National Salon of Artists (2019), Scholarship for Colombians in the process of artistic and cultural studying abroad (2019) and of the residency in Lugar a Dudas (Cali, 2018 ) of the Ministry of Culture of Colombia. She has participated in exhibitions in Colombia, Mexico, Ecuador, the Netherlands and Panama.
