“Through it, I continue to explore the way in which we perceive and process information, dealing with concepts of navigation, language, displacement, memory and noise,” states Collazo-Llorens about her upcoming installation.
The Bass Museum of Art along with Miami Beach Botanical Garden and ArtCenter/South Florida present Nayda Collazo-Llorens: Pleasure, Fear and the Pursuit of Happiness as part of tc: temporary contemporary. A public textual intervention consisting of text bubbles throughout the walking paths of the Miami Beach Botanical Garden. Collazo-Llorens’ works are based on thoughts and memories, both real and invented, collected from Miami Beach locals and visitors. The text was collected by completing on-site questionnaires, informal surveys and casual conversations in and around Miami Beach. Pedestrians will experience the narrative by participating in an open-endedjourney, a textscape or mental mapping to accompany them as they walk the gardens.
Nayda Collazo-Llorens is a visual artist based in both New York City and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She is an ArtCenter alumna who was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
