about

Monstera Deliciosa is a multi-faceted performative phenomenon whose work and persona reflect on her experience as a gender non-conforming subject and her construction and positioning as other in the public space. With a background in performance art, Monstera’s works vary in methodology and format, spanning across and often combining performance, video and installation.

Her pieces have been presented internationally in NYC, London, Berlin, Lima, Venice, Vienna and Milan, circulating within the context of galleries and festivals as well as inhabiting the public space as part of guerrilla interventions. After a period of research and presentations in Portugal, Monstera Deliciosa has now returned to London where she continues to develop and present iterations of her ongoing multi-disciplinary series The Iconography of the Vulnerable Self and Liminal Bodies, while further discussing and problematising notions of queer and trans visibility, ephemerality, commodification and erasure.
