Cuban artists

Born in 1974 in Camagüey (Cuba). Trained in Cuban art schools, she moved to Amsterdam in 2000. After obtaining the Guggenheim scholarship in 2004, she went to New York for a year. Between 2005 and 2013, Castillo lived in Brooklyn. Since 2013, she lives and works between Amsterdam and Havana. Over the past 20 years, Liset Castillo has built sculptures, intricate installations in sand, wood, plexiglass, powdered pigments and other materials which she then photographed in her studio.

The idea of the ephemeral state of things, chaos, order, creation and destruction has always been a leitmotif in his work. Liset Castillo creates conceptual and metaphorical works that question the definition and boundaries between sculpture, painting and photography. From the outset, she creates works that defy categorization. It gives new meaning to objects and materials reflecting the antagonisms of subjects such as: order and disorder, material and ephemeral, disintegration and development.

Liset Castillo has exhibited her work in the United States and Europe. Among his most significant exhibitions is the 10th Havana Biennale; “The Edge of Intent” at the Museum of Contemporary Photography, MoCP, Chicago; “Itinerarios” at the Marcelino Botin Foundation, Santander - Spain; “Infinite Island. Contemporary West Indian Art "at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York;" Pain is Universal, as Hope "at the Black & White Gallery, New York; the 8th Havana Biennale. She has received numerous scholarships, including those from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, the Cintas Foundation, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and the Marcelino Botin Foundation. His works can be found in important museums and private collections including the National Gallery in Washington, Museum of Contemporary Photography, MoCP, Chicago, the Marcelino Botin Foundation Collection, the Frost Art Museum at Miami International University (Collection Cintas) ...
