Iréne Niké Alberty Cardona

Master of Fine Arts in Studio, Film, Video, New Media, and Animation

Born in the archipelago of Puerto Rico but currently based in Chicago, Iréne Niké Alberty Cardona is a multimedia artist working with video, soft sculptural objects and the instances where both meet. Fostering conversation between the screen and its skin, she fuses fiber and video projection into one single, breathing texture in the installation space. Intervening and sampling found footage, family archives, and fiber techniques, Iréne examines the heartbreak of colonization, plays with spirits, and explores the dusty corners of memory.
