Berta Jayo born in Santander, Spain, in 1971, she studied B.A. Honours Degree Fine Art at the University of Bilbao, Spain and she has done her Postgraduate and MA Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art and Design in London. She has participated on many programs as ISCP (International studio and Curational Program) New York. She is a nonconformist, critical and continuously evolving talented creator whose clearest language is conceptual art developed on a large variety of media. Her clear and concise ideas encourage reflection, which is also disturbing and provoking our intellect. Her original, power-charged projects awakening our anesthetised and banal existence to offer us their far from stereotypical visions of life.
Her work has been exhibited in many countries and it has been shown at International Art Fairs such as ARCO Madrid, SWAB Barcelona, FRIEZE London, PULSE New York, Art BASEL Switzerland, 57th Venice Biennale, Documenta 14 Kassel Germany, at International Festivals as Video Screen Festival in Berlín or New Media Festival HACS Miami, at public spaces or Museums as MAM RD, MAS, The Chill Concept Museum Miami, CAC Málaga, CAM Naples, Bronx Museum NYC, Reina Sofía, Tate Modern, Guggenheim Bilbao, MoMa, Louvre París. Other relevant exhibitions are: 'Exquisite Doll Kit' México itinerating, 'Artists from XX and XXI century', itinerating, Sala Robayera, 'Ellas' Madrid, itinerating, Void + Tokio, Japan.
This work in which the main monuments of the world disappear reflects a fascinating absence that makes us reflect on the importance of creation and its vital importance in our society.
