Mónica Félix


I am a photography, video, installation, and performance artist. I also incorporate creative writing in my projects to explore identity through all these devices. Experience and self-realization are materia prima in my process. This undertaking is framed by the continuous research of historic archives, lore of the uncanny, hydrofeminism and colonial theories, as well as somatic practices. I'm interested in modern mythology shaped by including my lineage in places where they have been historically dismissed.

Mónica Félix (b. 1984) is an interdisciplinary artist, professional photographer, and yoga teacher born and raised in Cayey, Puerto Rico.
