Linet Sánchez Santa Clara, Cuba | 1989
Linet Sánchez graduated from the University of the Arts (ISA) in Havana in 2013 where she studied Visual Arts and from the Leopoldo Romañach Professional Academy of Fine Arts in Santa Clara, Cuba in 2008 where she majored in Painting. She also studied Ballet between 2003 through 2008 in Santa Clara, Cuba.
A multidisciplinary artist, working in the midst of photography, sculpture and video, Linet's voice focuses on memories and related mental images to architectural spaces that she reconstructs as cardboard or wood models. These become non-inhabited environments that she uses to speak about the relationships she finds between memories and oblivion. She explores how memories are not a reality but a construction of our mind, something new.
Her work, part of public and private collections, has been widely exhibited in countries and places such as the CC Mechelen, Mechelen, Belgium in 2022; Southeast Museum of Photography, Daytona Beach, Florida, U.S.A. in 2018; Rostrum Gallery, Malmö, Switzerland in 2018; Foto Museo Cuatro Caminos, México City, México in 2017; The Annemberg Space for Photography, Los Ángeles, U.S.A. in 2017; Wifredo Lam Contemporary Art Center, Havana, Cuba in 2016; Factoría Habana, Havana, Cuba in 2010 amoung many others.
