Yorely Valero

Bogotá, Colombia, 1992

Lives and works in Ciudad de Mexico

Artist, Alumni of the Jorge Tadeo Lozano University. Lives and works in Mexico City where she currently studies at the SOMA Educative Program. Her work consists of observing everyday life, using subtle interruptions as a way of raising questions about time, natural phenomena, the human scale compared to what surrounds us, and our position in the universe. She is interested in singling out the poetic potency of daily scenarios, and focuses on routines and journeys, and the identification of patterns in certain contexts for further interpretation of objects of thought regarding issues that are often studied from a scientific point of view. Through mediums such as photography, video, and installation, she is interested in creating images, experiences, and events that manifest said interests. Her work has earned her the Scholarship for independent editorial projects of the 45th National Artist Salon (2019), Scholarship for Colombians in the process of achieving an artistic and cultural education abroad (2019), and the Colombian Ministry of Culture’s residency “Lugar a Dudas” (A place for Doubt) (Cali, 2018). She has participated in exhibitions around the world in places such as Colombia, Mexico, Ecuador, the Netherlands, and Panama.
