A graduate of UQAM in Arts visuels et médiatiques, Cristel Silva is interested in the notion of territory and associated reflections on individual and collective identity. Her work is multidisciplinary, and features mediums, such as textiles, photography, and installation, in order to present nature in the metropolis as a means of fragmenting power structures. She has participated in many group exhibitions, and her work has been displayed at Ateliers Jean Brillant, GHAM & DAFE, and at Galerie de l’UQAM. Originally from Mexico, Cristel lives and works in Montréal.
