Cirenaica Moreira graduated from the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana
with a specialization in the performing arts and her tableau-like photographs
reflect this training. In the work, the viewer is presented with a frozen
moment in some undisclosed drama, the artist herself playing the lead
role. These staged fragments of space and timereplete with anomalous
combinations of settings, costumes, and propsare both provocative
and disquieting. Recent solo shows include Cirenaica Moriera: Letters
from Inxile, La Casona Gallery, Havana (2002) and Cuban Conceptual
Photography by Cirenaica Moreira, Centro de Ceatividad Fotográfica
del Caribe, Cancun, Mexico (1997). Recent group exhibitions include, Imaging
the Spirit: Albert Chong, Juan Carlos Alom & Cirenaica Moreira,
Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, Colorado (2001) and Elb Art Hamburg,
Germany (2001). Moreira's work is featured in collections internationally.
She lives and works in Havana.
