Estefania Puerta's work is made up of a wide range of materials to form new poetics of transformation and translation. Her practice is rooted in world making, shape shifting, border crossing, and language failure. Her research in psycho-analysis as it relates to the history of hysteria, natural medicine/folklore, and personal histories of immigration and undocumentation in the U.S. has led to questions around what is considered “natural” and “alien” in her materially diverse work. Puerta received her MFA from Yale School of Art in 2018. She was born in Colombia and currently lives and works between Vermont and New York.
