Ileana Moreno

Born in 1989 in Mexico City 

Lives and works in Mexico City 

She has a bachelor in Visual Arts by the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México and specialized in patronage and tailoring by the Zeitgeist Institute. She works with conventional mediums such as paint, sculpture and embroidery as well as with non conventional mediums – associated with fashion- such as glitter, synthetic hair and plastic.

The choice of materials and their combinations parts from the reviews she makes of History, specifically rituals and gods. The conceptual and visual narratives that she proposes use speculation, re-writing and a playful view to subvert the naturalized lectures from the past. 

She has had solo shows in Biquini Wax EPS, Ladrón Galería, Estudio Marte and Luis Galería and has participated in group shows in Salón Silicón, Zona Maco, Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, CENART, la Bienal Nacional de Monterrey and the Bienal UNAM Artes Visuales, Museo Universitario de Ciencia y Artes (MUCA).
