Maud Haya-Baviera works with a variety of media and methods, including video, photography, sculpture and installation, employing the strategies of appropriation, performance and participation. She uses literature, cinema and any other material able to convey narratives, which she then playfully subverts to provoke new meanings.
Her current work applies visual experiments to test, reveal and challenge social and political constructs. More broadly, her work is centred on emancipatory concerns. She has exhibited her work in a solo capacity and in group shows nationally and internationally and has received a number of awards in relation to international projects and towards the production of new works.
